"Dan Fogelberg is one of those few songwriters that can blend great lyrics with wonderful music. His songs don't just tell a story they paint a picture. Although he's known for his top 40 hits he never compromised his standards when writing and producing his albums. This box set gives the listener a great feel of how his music progressed though the years.One of the strengths of this collection is the format. Each of the 4 CDs included have a main theme. CD #1 is a "greatest hits" listing, covering all his hits from A to Z. CD #2 are ballads that weren't hits but were popular with his main-stream fans. CD #3 covers his "rock-n-roll" side, and CD #4 has his stories of places and people. Each CD is well worth listening to. Of course all the hits are wonderful, but some of my other favorites are "Nexus" off CD 4, "As the Raven Flies" and "The River" of #3, and "Tucson, Arizona" off #4.I would recommend this to any music fan who is looking for a great musical experience."
He can melt your heart or your speakers

"How can you describe a set that includes "Same Auld Lang Syne"(will melt your heart) and "Tell Me to My Face" (turn it up and let it melt your speakers). The only word I know is fabulous.
I have listened to Dan Fogelberg since the mid-70's. My first acquaintance with him came through "Netherlands" which I played until the grooves wore out. I then followed that with "Phoenix", "Innocent Age", etc. and loved them all. Sometime during the 80's, I moved on to other artists and lost touch with Dan's music. "Portrait" gave me a chance to rekindle this relationship with a vengance. I love the music in this set for several reasons. First, it compiled virutally all of his best among the four discs. Second, it allowed me to discover incredible new music like "Seeing You Again" and "The Minstrel"(who else could write such a beautiful song about a boat?). Third, the format of the discs allows me to trace his development as a songwriter and last, the liner notes where he discusses each of the songs are a treasure.
In my mind, there is only one glaring omission from the set; that being "Ghosts" from "Innocent Age" Other than that, load up the multi-disc player, sit back, close your eyes and enjoy."
