Retrospective is an odd overview of Rosanne Cash's later recordings for Columbia, featuring a combination of hits, album tracks, rarities, and new songs. Which means, the album does contain hits like the number one "Runaway Train," but it concentrates on the lesser-known material, whether it was the minor hit "On the Surface" or Elvis Costello's "Our Little Angel." It's a good compilation, but it's a little unnecessary, since the albums it is culled from -- Interiors, The Wheel -- function better as individual albums, and don't lend themselves well to collections.

(This review is of a CD.) Retrospective is a rather oddly compiled grab bag of Roseanne Cash’s late 80s-early 90s work. Putting that aside, there is some great music on this CD. The catchy The Wheel should have been a pop hit. Some of the ballads show a more mature, sadder and wiser side of the artist, who was recovering from the breakup of her marriage to Rodney Crowell when most of this was recorded. The recent The Essential Roseanne Cash probably is a better choice then this out of print item.
