Halcyon Days (UK) cover

1997 saw A&M release a 2CD retrospective with rarities collection. Featuring various hard to find single B-sides, some Hudson Ford material and two otherwise unreleased tracks, this did rather better than A&M had expected (allegedly outselling the Joan Armatrading retrospective released at more or less the same time) and went a long way towards convincing A&M to go ahead with re-issues of most of the original albums on CD.

The US version of Halcyon Days took a different approach, with a chronological selection and a very different track selection.
