The Definitive Collection is a compilation album by Australian singer-songwriter and musician Archie Roach, originally released in July 2004 by Mushroom Records.

Archie Roach is an Australian musician, singer-songwriter and guitarist who has developed a unique voice and storytelling style to showcase Australia's diverse geographical and cultural backgrounds. He has become a very important musician and cultural figure in the Australian music landscape and writes songs of love and healing, always looking forward to the future with an amazingly positive outlook, given his personal journey in life.

His breakthrough was in 1990 with the release of his debut album Charcoal Lane, produced by Paul Kelly that contained the classic song Took The Children Away which won an international ‘Human Rights Achievement Award’, and the album two ARIA awards. He has overcome recent setbacks with the loss of his life partner Ruby Hunter in 2010 and then a stroke and lung cancer. Music has been part of his healing journey and he has made some of the strongest albums of his career with Into The Bloodstream in 2012 and now his latest release Let Love Rule.

Having survived a personal history that would have left most artists scarred and defeated, Archie Roach has emerged as an extraordinarily gifted Australian artist with a truly visionary talent.

The Definitive Collection is a solid overview of Australian Aboriginal singer/songwriter Archie Roach's career, starting with his politically-charged signature song "Took The Children Away".

Archie Roach is a man of few words but when he speaks, or sings, those words lift you up, transport you and humble you. He is that rarest of beings; one that sees beyond race, religion, gender and ideology.

Check out the tracks: “A Child Was Born Here”; “F Troop”; “Charcoal Lane”; “Beautiful Child”. 

This CD housed in a jewel case is manufactured in Australia.
