Quiet Heart – The Best of The Go-Betweens

The first Go-Betweens compilation to cover their entire career, from 1978 to 2005. Tracks were selected by Robert Forster, Lindy Morrison, Robert Vickers and Amanda Brown. If you have all the albums you will have all the tracks already however the album comes as a 2CD package, with the second disc Vienna Burns – Live 1987 featuring an excellent live concert recording which has a stunning version of “The House That Jack Kerouac Built”. See also Bellavista Terrace which concentrates on phase one of the bands work.

The trackisting on the first CD is pretty random – perhaps it would have been better to track them chronologically? But that’s a minor niggle. If you don’t know the band this is a good place to start.
