Another Top 10 of 2012 for Collected. - February 7, 2013

John Lomax III of Country Music People has just listed 'Collected' as one of the top releases of 2012

'Collected' called one of 10 best of 2012 - December 18, 2012

Outlaw Magazines Dave Pilot has listed 'Collected' as on of the top 10 releases of 2012. He wrote:
Randy Thompson, Collected – If not my personal favorite record this year (and that’s a big if), certainly the one that I’ve gone back to most consistently. While it has the distinct advantage of being one of the earliest to come through my mail slot in 2012, there were a host of others that came in early and haven’t gotten near the airplay this one does. Crunchy, emphatic guitars wrapped around as compelling a vocal as I can recall. Masterfully written songs, masterfully delivered. Collected is a pro’s record, but it’s also one of those albums that gets you down deep on a visceral level and latches on to stay. Thompson’s take on Utah Phillips’ “Rock Salt and Nails” leaves an indelible mark, but the originals here are even more powerful. The rare record that works every bit as well at sunrise as it does as sunset, albeit for different reasons. Here there be art, boys and girls. Genuinely great art.
