Originally released in 2009 by Drifting/Falling records, ‘Collected Recordings’ is a testament to what can be achieved with deliberately limited instrumentation and production. Using only an acoustic guitar, economical vocals and the most tasteful amount of reverb, Gareth Dickson has created a beautifully simplistic ambient folk record.

9/10 Brian Staff review, 28 May 2009
Gareth Dickson had an album out called 'Spruce Goose' a few years back and it was always a steady seller for us, mainly down to it having an atmospheric beauty that many folksters & acoustic types don't quite muster. He's quite a master at combining acoustic resonance & ambient moods. His style is definitely schooled in the shadow of Nick Drake whilst this warm echo-laden aura permeates his atmospheric plucking, strumming and thumbing, almost creating an additional instrument from his bare surroundings. His voice, employed intermittently, is hushed and melancholy, almost an afterthought to his playing which is gently exploratory, extremely calming and fascinatingly tentative with the sounds of the studio such as the creak of a chair becoming much a part of the overall tapestry. This is one of the loveliest modern acoustic works I've heard and the fact is I'm taking one home to soothe my weary post bank holiday bonce tells you I heartily recommend its magical purity. Collected Recordings is CD only on Drifting Falling.

9/10 RR Customer review, 25th April 2014

As can be expected from the renowned 12k label, this has quite an ambient tendency. Beyond the meditative quality of a lot of the tracks here – from simple guitar-dominated, reverberated atmospherics to raga-like moods, fingerpicking miniatures and drone-type pieces – there's a lot to enjoy in Gareth Dickson's songwriting and gentle singing as well, reminiscent of Nick Drake. The recording quality is excellent; this very warm and personal "sound world" really ties the album together and makes it a unified whole. In addition to the excellent guitar playing and explorative feel, the lovely textural experimentation in the track "Like A Clock" provides a counterpoint to the sweetness that prevails on this album. Highly recommended!
