I wouldn't normally review a greatest hits album, because naturally they are good. If you haven't heard Holly Golightly before then this compilation of hits would be a good introduction. She is quite unique in her genre of music. Very few Women have been successful when it comes to writing and recording hard electric blues. But Holly's light gravely voice suits the style wonderfully.

With ten albums under her belt she has a huge selection of songs to pick from, spanning ten years of hard work. The tracks here show how her sound has evolved, from bluesy garage rock through to alt-country blues, with the odd folk song in between. They run together on this disc beautifully and before long you will be singing along.

This is great as an introduction, but I would recommend buying one of her studio albums.

Holly Golightly is one of my favorite musicians. I love pretty much everything she does. Although her style has varied somewhat on many of her albums, there's consistently a grittiness and realness and a bit of a retro feel in her work. She has such a unique sound and distinctive voice. Seeing Holly perform live is always a treat. She's sassy and modest and always delivers. This album is a good start if you haven't heard her other stuff. If you like this, give the rest of her catalog a try. And, if you've never heard Holly in her prior bands, Thee Headcoatees or The Bristols, give a listen--they combine a punk feel with 50s and 60s sounds.

I like Holly. She is unpretentious, fun to listen to. I like this disc from start to finish. She choses good covers and her own songs are cut from the same cloth as her covers. Had she been writing these songs back in the 50s or 60s she would have been a big star and people would be covering her today. It is basically garage rock, nothing complicated, but infectious. I haven't heard her newest stuff with Lawyer Dave, but I sure enjoy her older stuff and hope that having a collaborator hasn't changed her sound and approach.

I'm an older guy, in my 60s, and have a pretty wide collection of rock, jazz, blues and world music. For younger people who enjoy Holly I'd suggest Johnny Rivers. He had hits in the 60s, most notably Secret Agent Man. His style and sound are very, very similar to Holly's: open chord electric rhythm guitar, straight ahead uncluttered arrangements. His choice of covers is more folk oriented rather than blues, but you'd enjoy. Listening to Sally Go Round the Roses from this CD on the way in today reminds me greatly of the Great Society version of that song. Great Society was Grace Slick's original band before the Airplane. Great Society is definitely a forerunner of this sound, whether Holly ever heard them or not.
