The Definitive Collection
Eliza Carthy

Highpoint Recordings HPO6005 (CD, UK, October 2003)

Issued under licence from Topic Records

The album's title seems a bit preposterous considering Eliza's age—we surely will see many more “definitive” songs from her—but this is a good overview over her career up to now.
