Cassar-Daley released a 42-track double CD set of his Greatest Hits on October 19 (just in time for Christmas). Here's what Greg Bush had to say about the album in the "Road Sounds" music column in Owner//Driver's October edition:

New album from Troy Cassar-Daley.

Troy Cassar-Daley
Troy Cassar-Daley released a "best of" album back in 2007. He’s had a lot more hits since then, hence the release of Greatest Hits, a 42-track double-CD set. This collection goes back to his first hit ‘Dream Out Loud’ in 1994, and even before that with the independently-released ‘Proud Young Man’. Cassar-Daley’s vocals have matured noticeably over the years, the excellent ‘Things I Carry Around’ from his 2016 album of the same name a prime example. A number of collaborations are dotted throughout this collection, including ‘Ramblin Man’ with Tommy Emmanuel, ‘Wish I Was A Train’ with Paul Kelly, ‘Get Away Car’ with Kasey Chambers, and ‘Bird On A Wire’ with Jimmy Barnes.
