"Black and White - The Definitive Collection" is very good. I want to point out that not all the songs on it are his own. There are a few that are traditional ballads. "Sheath and Knife", for example, is the best version I've heard of that chilling incest ballad.

I recently ordered (from CDNow--so I helped support the Mudcat at the same time!) another excellent MacColl CD entitled "The Real MacColl". It has 20 tracks of a wonderful mixture of traditional songs, some penned by himself, and some not. Like "Black and White", it is a compilation disc with selections from five MacColl recordings.

(PS. I'm a real MacColl fan too. I've been singing his songs since I was in grade school.)
