Pass In Time- The Definitive Collection

BMG UK gathered nearly all of Beth Orton's brightest moments for Pass in Time: The Definitive Collection. This double-disc set does a decent job presenting Orton's undeniable gift as an artist, and those who are introduced to her for the first time here will be thoroughly impressed. Those longtime fans who already own her first three albums and the Best Bit EP might be puzzled at Pass in Time's unfashionably early arrival; however, the 24-song compilation merits the same consideration given to Orton's previous work. The second disc of B-sides, rarities, and remixes is more than enough to warrant attention, for the ten-song selection includes her stunning collaborations with the Chemical Brothers ("Where Do I Begin"), Terry Callier ("Dolphins"), and William Orbit ("Water from a Vine Leaf"). The original B-side to "She Cries Your Name," "It's Not the Spotlight" was exclusively reworked for Pass in Time, but the biggest surprise lies in the inclusion of two tracks from her Superpinkymandy album. With a little nudge from Orbit, Orton first introduced herself with this experimental-dance effort, which was only available in Japan and is now out of print. The glittering electronic twist of John Martyn's "Don't Wanna Know 'Bout Evil" and the gentle humming of "Where Do You Go?" give a glimpse of Orton's pre-commercial solo days. Pass in Time is a worthwhile collection, but the time of its release remains in question. Orton has just gotten started and her work is far from conclusive.
Brilliant and beautiful and haunting
What is going on here? No reviews? And where has the great CD Central Reservation gone off iTunes? I urge people to listen to this for songs which have incredible tunes and arrangements and mood. 'I can still smell you on my fingers and taste you on my breath' (Central Reservation). We love many things from Dylan to Goldfrapp to Sandy Denny to Gullemots and this is right up there. Loved forever. Thanks. For beauty sample try track 10.
