If you haven't yet been bitten by the Tom T. bug, this well-chosen single-CD collection serves as a perfect introduction. Not so much a hits package--it leaves behind many of his biggest charters--Essential instead focuses on his strongest narratives and most memorable characters. Blessed with an uncanny ability to turn a phrase, Hall clearly isn't an average, ordinary, run-of-the-mill American; yet those are the people he's obsessed with and the people he seems to understand better than they understand themselves. Waitresses, farmers, preachers, musicians, soldiers, hitchhikers, and assorted misters and ma'ams populate his stories, and Hall himself is the narrator, the observer, the straight man as it were, utterly fascinated by what most consider mundane. Hall is amiable and incredibly credible, somehow removing all the sap from sentimentality. --Marc Greilsamer
