Also Included: Merrie Melodies Tunebook, Swarb! Biography,

Green Man - Stephen Hunt
The book is actually deserving of a full-length review all to itself, but suffice to say it's as good as one could possibly hope for, and then some…. I could spend the rest of the week happily extolling the virtues of this wonderful set

BBC Late Junction - Verity Sharp
A Mammoth, Bargain release - beautifully-packaged by Free Reed

BBC Radio 2 - Mike Harding
A must for any fan! - great book too!!

Chris Leslie
Just an amazing set - that really does Swarb justice

folking.com - Peter Fyfe
I'm sure that the protagonists Neil Wayne and Nigel Schofield are well used to receiving the accolades they so rightly deserve (their OBE can't be too far away) and the 'folk' world can once again rest easy in their beds in the knowledge that justice has been served. I'm talking about the kind of justice that only comes to light after serving forty-five years on the circuit and being proved guilty of giving the public what they want and to coin a phrase "…what they really, really want".

What a Treat!! - a comprehensive retrospective with the weight, care and love you might expect

Amazon Editorial Review - Mark Walker
If anyone deserves a tribute as impressive and comprehensive as this Swarb!! Box, it is surely mercurial fiddler Dave Swarbrick. This luxurious box set is another in Free Reed's exemplary series.

John Peel

Ric Sanders
It's just great, brilliant, amazing

Elderly Instruments Review
British folk's most elite fiddler..gets the royal treatment in this lavish 4-CD box set, the third in the Free Reed series and perhaps the finest yet

Free Reed are firmly at the leading edge of the box set market... a stunning new release... jaw-dropping packaging... a veritable Box of Delights

Amazon Customer Review
A product worthy of the great man himself (five stars)

Record Collector - Colin Harper
A treasure trove for the faithful and a worthy "best of" for the curious, those crazy Free Reedsters deserve the highest accolades

Sunday Times
Nobody could fail to be impressed by the scale of this undertaking - (CD of the week with a maximum 3 stars)

This is Oxfordshire, Community
Great stuff, and further proof if it were needed that the guy is the governor of folk fiddle.

fizgig folk and roots news
Remember last year's amazing Fairport unConventional 4-CD blockbuster set?? "How can they follow that" we all said .... Well, Free Reed have delivered the answer in a stunning new release, another 4 CD Box-Set on 'the life and music of folk's finest fiddler' Dave Swarbrick….The jaw-dropping packaging is even a replica of Swarb's own fiddle case, complete with fiddle string packs, (his bows are in the lid!)

writing to The Fairport List - David Kelly
The Swarb! Box…is superb. I loaded it onto the iPod for the 3 hour plane trip to Perth to see my daughter the weekend before last. If it is possible it is even better than the FC box.
