Robbie Robertson – Classic Masters

This collection combines Robertson’s heritage-finding discs Music For The Native Americans and Contact From The Underworld Of Red Boy, including the songs he delivered at the 2002 Winter Olympics. These projects are clearly very close to the artist’s heart but the uninitiated may have some, er, reservations.

Robertson’s increasingly ambient music finds lustre in “Golden Feather” and on the Howie B remix of “Take Your Partner By The Hand”, although you’ll need to be a very onside Robertson fan to pick up on all the smoke signals.
