Editorial Reviews

Wow it's been 30 years since George and his Destroyers first plugged in, turned up and took their rockin' blues on the path to stardom. This CD rounds up 16 key cuts: Move It On Over; Who Do You Love?; One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer; Willie & the Hand Jive; Bad to the Bone; I Drink Alone , plus live tracks, alternate takes and more rowdy rock 'n' roll!

I spent the better part of four hours last weekend racing on an X-Box with a friend. The finest part was turning down the video soundtrack and substituting George Thorogood's 30 Years of Rock collection! Talk about adrenaline pumping tunes!! The collection and body of work offered by this man has stood the test of time over these years, and is summarized beautifully in this anthology. The only disappointment was "Ride On Josephine" is conspicuously absent from the CD. Oh well...can't have everthing. I'll just have to buy another thoroughly good Thorogood CD to get that track! Ride on, George...ride on!

I found this album in Wal Mart for nine bucks, and at that price it was an absolute steal.

This has got George's best known songs on it as well as two great live cuts. Great all-American rock and roll. When I hear "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" I get goosebumps. I could've done without the remix of "Who Do You Love?", especially when you consider (as another reviewer pointed out) "Ride On Josephine" isn't on this, but that's seriously a minor quibble for the insane price I nabbed this for. I love it and I'm glad I've got in in the old music collection.

Maybe when I'm out of college and have some money to burn I'll get George's catalogue, but for now this greatest hits comp is a can't miss.

It sounds crazy, but it's true. This guy is a fantastic blues guitar player, and he's from the State of Delaware. And this CD is a collection of his finest songs from over the past three decades. It's a great CD and a must have for any fan of blues guitars.

Thorogood is a true blues musician, every song, every lick inspired by the blues. He never strayed. In his music you hear the influence of greats like John Lee Hooker, Elmore James and Muddy Waters, but Thorogood plays it in his own energetic style. He won't be remembered as a great technician. SRV or Albert King could pick circles around him in their sleep. But he has created a distinct innovative modern blues style that hopefully will influence many others.

A must add that I just love the sound of that Gibson ES-125 with P-90s. It has a very distinctive sound that you just can't get with most other guitars, and that sound is a perfect complement to the blues as Lonesome George so beautifully demonstrates on all the songs on this CD.

In this very fine greatest hits package, Lonesome George demonstrates exactly why his best songs became a staple of FM rock and karaoke bars everywhere. Turn the volume up to 11 on hits like "Bad to the Bone", "I Drink Alone", "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" and "Who Do You Love?" (the original, not the overslick, lifeless remix) and you'll blow the roof off of every gin joint in town.
The rest of the disc, however, may leave you wanting more unless your a hardcore GT fan. "Madison Blues", "If You Don't Start Drinkin'" and "Get a Haircut" are good fun, but Thorogood treats "Willie & the Hand Jive" like a throwaway and likewise goes through the motions on "You Talk to Much" and "American Made", the weakest song on the CD.
The back to back live tracks, "The Sky is Crying" and "Reelin & Rockin'" point out Thorogood's biggest weakness and best strength. His balls-to-the-wall approach, though heartfelt, hurts a song like "Sky" which requires more subtlety. "Reelin'" though, is the type of all out party song Thorogood excells at.
Devoted Thorogood fans will not be disappointed by this CD. Newbies to his music, however, may get lost once they get past his biggest hits.

Buy this, now.

You've all ready come far enough to look at this review so, obviously, you have some appreciation for at least this genre, if you don't all ready know who George Thorogood and the Destroyers are. If this is true, then you need this album. However you wound up reading this, take it as fate and make a good decision.

There is no better than One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer, or I Drink Alone when it comes to cracking open a beer and having a good time. And who doesn't love that?

This compilation was very well done, it's got most of his classic, hit songs, there are a few that aren't here, but it's still very good. The sound is great and there are gems on here, as well. Good bluesy-rock. This is the best compilation of GT, to get.

with the other "baddest" one cd and the anthology both being out of print this is the best gt collection available. BUT it just isn't strong enough dont get me wrong excluding the remix every song on here is good but there is just too much missing such as: ride on josephine, delaware slide, im wanted, born to be bad, house of blue lights, cocaine blues. and so on. but unless yuor willing to buy all his albums you will have to settle for this just dont be suprised if you find yourself wanting more.

personally i'm waiting for the box set.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers / 30 years of rock: Known as one of the best cover bands of all time, these guys know how to rock. Thorogood is great Live but as to their recorded output, there are just a handful of great songs that are worth having in a music lovers collection. This CD has all those key tracks. Besides the great "Bad to the Bone", the band does a brilliant version of John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, one scotch, one beer" which turns this simple song into an epic. A very good album. Four Stars.
