Fusing the spirit of punk rock with traditional Irish folk music, Shane MacGowan and the Pogues created a distinctive musical style and influenced such modern alternative heroes as Dropkick Murphys and the Real McKenzies. MacGowan's songwriting and distinctive vocals have created some great music, both in the studio and live. This fantastic double CD brings you the best of both The Pogues' worlds. Disc 1 features 22 classic singles and album tracks including 'Irish Rover' (with The Dubliners), 'A Pair Of Brown Eyes', 'White City, 'London Girl', 'Fiesta', their unique rendition of Ewan MacColl's 'Dirty Old Town' and 'Fairytale Of New York', which features the incomparable vocal talents of the late Kristy MacColl (Ewan's daughter!).

This second disc features an additional 22 blistering performances including 'Turkish Song Of The Damned', 'Sally Maclennane', 'Young Ned Of The Hill' and 'The Sickbed of Cuchulainn' among others.

Putumayo's Brazilian Caf is an enchanting addition to its Caf series. Brazilian Caf brings together a captivating selection of samba, bossa nova and jazz by Brazilian stars and up-and-coming talents. In the early 1960s, legendary Brazilian composers Antnio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes hung out in an Ipanema beachside caf where they would often see a beautiful neighborhood girl, Hel Pinheiro, walk by. She became the inspiration for one of the most popular songs of all time, Girl From Ipanema. The global bossa nova boom can be traced to that moment of musical inspiration at a Brazilian caf and most of the artists on this CD drew inspiration from Jobim, de Moraes and other songwriters who followed.
