I am a fan of Tab Benoit, have seen him in concert a few times, and have several of his CDs. This is an interesting collection of his music, but not necessarily the best. Some of the duets were lacking. His recent "Medicine" CD is better than this, so if you have to pick just one, buy it.

Louisiana singer, songwriter and guitarist Tab Benoit has been honing his craft for twenty-five years, developing a primal blues tone in both his guitar playing and singing. He's been recording for Telarc for more than a decade, and this fourteen track collection picks highlights from that catalog. The set opens with two particularly fierce tracks, a percussive cover of Julie Miller's "Shelter Me" and the rolling stock buzz of his original "Night Train." He covers Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You" with fellow guitarist Kenny Neal, and adds some Creedence-styled twang and bass to Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth." Additional guests in this collection include Jimmy Thackery, Billy Joe Shaver, Waylon Thibodeaux, Cyril Neville and Jimmy Hall. He crosses into country for Shaver's "Comin' on Strong" and croons soulfully on a cover of "These Arms of Mine" and, thankfully, resists the temptation to add any contemporary sheen to his blues. For a taste of his earlier work on Vanguard, check out Best of the Bayou Blues. [©2012 Hyperbolium]

This entire album is well worth the price just for one song alone, and that song is a Relatively New, "Live" Cover Version of Louisiana's LeRoux 1978 Classic Hit "New Orleans Ladies". It was originally released on Tab's "Night Train to Memphis" album. This particular Cover Version of "New Orleans Ladies" features Jimmy Hall (Lead Singer of the Southern Rock Band Wet Willie) on some of the lead vocals & harmonia, along with Louisiana's LeRoux, themselves, & Tab Benoit on lead guitar & some lead vocals. Tab sings the first verse, Jimmy Hall sings the second verse, then they both sing lead vocals together. It's an "Awesome" version of this great classic Southern Anthem. Plus, it was recorded "Live". By the way, Jimmy Hall & his band "Wet Willie", finally re-united after all these years, and they have just recently released a Brand New Live Album, recorded in 2011. It's entitled "Miles of Smiles". Amazon has it listed.

ALL the other songs are OUTSTANDING SONGS also if you like Southern, Electric, Blues Rock. The song "The Blues is here to Stay" features Cyril Neville on vocals & percussion. (Cyril is from New Orleans' First Family of Music - The Neville Brothers, plus he is also in the band "Royal Southern Brotherhood".)

"Nice and Warm", & "Whiskey Store" features Jimmy Thackery on guitar, Plus, both of these songs also feature the late/great Stevie Ray Vaughan's band members (Double Trouble). They are Reese Wymans on piano, Tommy Shannon on bass, & Chris Layton on the drums.

"Coming On Strong" features Louisiana's LeRoux as the backing band, Billy Joe Shaver on some vocals & Louisiana Cajun Rocker & Fiddler, Waylon Thibodeaux on the fiddle. (Waylon Thibodeaux & his band, performed regularly at a club on Bourbon Street in the New Orleans French Quarter for years.

This is the 2nd compilation album from Tab Benoit and it goes hand in hand with the first one “Best Of The Bayou Blues”. The two albums cover different stages of Tab’s career with completely different track listings. “Legacy Best Of” covers Tab’s post 1997 output all the way up to his most recent offering “Medicine”. This is a very nice collection and truly does represent a lot of Tab’s best material. This compilation includes many of Tab’s concert staples including the closest thing he has ever had to a hit “Shelter Me”, and other great tracks like “Night Train”, “New Orleans Ladies”, and a smoking live version of “Bayou Boogie”. The only track on here that I am not all that thrilled about is the country tinged “Comin On Strong”. Benoit toyed with country on one album and for me it only half worked. Overall though this is a very nice collection that would serve as a great introduction to Tab’s work or a nice overview. Buy this one with the earlier “Best Of The Bayou Blues” and you have a nice 2 CD compilation.

Have seen Tab 3 or 4 times love his music. There are a few songs I don`t care for and he has to sneak in a country song along the way. There were some good tunes I have not previously heard, more good than bad.

I'm new to Tab Benoit but wish I'd come across him sooner (he doesn't seem to have caught on here in Australia). This album is full of great songs, some of which are covers but done in his own individual style. Very refreshing. Also a range of songs which deliver a variety from rockin' swamp boogie blues to slower ballads. He's a good singer, and there's plenty of aggresive guitar playing driving things along. Really, really good.

This guy is quiet the entertainer. Have not seen him yet, except on You Tube. This CD is the one I grab first in my husband's Man Cave. "Shelter Me" is the most uplifting song. And Tab sings it right down to your soul. God Bless this guy with a special talent. CD was delivered fast/more than what I expected and would suggest everyone that love great music to buy this CD. Thanks
