Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr. of AMG wrote of the lager 8 disc set: Time-Life's The Folk Years is a massive survey of folk, pop-folk, and folk-rock from the 1950s and 1960s spread out over eight discs.

The emphasis of the collection is on popular folk and popular music influenced by folk, meaning that most of the songs here charted. This emphasis also gives The Folk Years a broader appeal than the average folk revival compilation, making it as fun as it is educational.

The Hollywood Years Vol. 2 is the second (and last) issue of 'The Hollywood Years' series, intended to feature "TD's leftover scores, songs and sequences". The material on this CD consists of previously unreleased material with the exceptions of "City Monk", that is featured as Ulan-Ude on the soundtrack album Transsiberia, and "Token From Birdland" which appears in a heavily remixed version under the same title on Ambient Monkeys.
