Denis Tracey brings an unusual vocal quality to his interpretation of some traditional and contemporary songs. His voice has a feathery soft sound with a touch of the wistful which can take the listener himself into the cemeteries of northern France (No Man's Land) to the outback (The Banks Of The Condamine) or a whaling Station in Antartica (Pot Bellied Stove).
He has included a selection of traditional Irish, Scotish and English folk tunes positioning them so that all his listeners can hear the legacy of those european songs in the latter music of Australian settlers. (Excerpt from Pop with Christine Hogan Sydney Morning Herald 21.05.1979)

Richard Clapton is undoubtedly one of our finest singer songwriters ever his music from the seventies has stood the test of time as this compilation will attest to. This greatest hits compilation only takes us up to 1978 and their was still a lot more to come as Richard is still recording and performing til this very day be sure to catch him on Saturday 18th of August 2012 at the State Theater in Sydney.
This album contaied two new tracks alongside his classics at that time - "Stepping Across The Line" & "When The Heat's Off" Hence the preview part of the album title and far as I know "When The Heat's Off" has never been issued on any other release (either Vinyl or CD).
