Overview

The Rod McKuen Collection 1956-1994 is an inexpensive box set that packages together five CDs that are otherwise available individually: At Carnegie Hall, Speaking of Love, At the Movies, The French Connection, and Early Harvest. The collections are unusually well done by Laserlight's standards; each disc has a generous number of original recordings and detailed liner notes. While At Carnegie Hall and Early Harvest are strong albums, the others are for serious fans only. An enormous amount of McKuen's music and poetry recitations are here, but most listeners would be better served by select discs from this set and the first two volumes of greatest hits collections on Laserlight.
