no...not the ultimate...but still pretty darn good...
on February 20, 2002
First off let me say, I loves Jerry Jeff. Buy anything and everything I find, tho I don't own it all, someday I'spect I will. While this is a good start, all of us die-hard double J.W. fans know there is a box set a-comin' down the trail someday, and that I hope is the 'ultimate collection' that will include his best from ALL his labels. Which should amount to at least a 4 to 6 cd set... Of course, the box set won't satisfy everyone,but, very few box sets do. As far as this set goes, clocking in at over 77 minutes,it is a good intro to Jerry Jeff, but having to leave off such great songs as "DRIFTIN' WAY OF LIFE", "RAMBLIN',SCRAMBLIN',"GOT LUCKY LAST NIGHT", "HILL COUNTRY RAIN", "NAVAJO RUG" and one of Jerry Jeff's best, most solemn ballads, "BLUE MOOD", plus another dozen or so fitting tunes, this would of made a great double cd collection that would of possibly merited the "ultimate" label.Still, for the uninitiated, it's the best collection out right now, and... it is Jerry Jeff! 'Nuff said.
