Robbie Fulks The Very Best of....

BS 059 2000 $7.95
DigitalAmazon - SALE!FinaiTunes

Don’t let the title fool you (we all know what a smart-ass Robbie can be), this was all unreleased material!!! Some of it was old, some of it was new, some of it was borrowed, and some of it wasblue (if you know what we mean). There are brand new songs (recorded with Steve Albini), a demo or two, a couple of live cuts, some soundtrack weirdness, a couple of things left off his first two Bloodshot CDs, and a killer duet with Kelly Willis ("Parallel Bars"). All in all, it’s a Fulk-narian delight full of old school honky-tonk grooves, hum along roots/pop finger-snappers, bluegrass foot stomps, and some genuinely hi-larious novelties. This CD pulls out all the musical stops and hits the station with enough bluster and steam to fog your glasses and mess up your 'do.

Features appearances from most of Robbie's favorite co-horts including The Skeletons and bluegrass icons Special Consensus, and some homey cover art by Chicago's own country music cartoonist, Heather McAdams.

Worth the price of admission for Robbie's liner notes ALONE!!!

"Robbie Fulks is having more wise-ass fun than anyone in American music these days... and his ability to craft fresh, offhand arrangements gives punch to his endlessly clever lyrics." —Pulse

"Rarely has there been a record in music history that is so sure of itself, and so careless about what people might think of it. Mainstream success may still not come to Fulks, but it wouldn't be for want of good, truly original work." —Big O Magazine

"With genuine bluegrass, thumping honky-tonk, and sunny pop, it is high-spirited affection, not dreary reverence to tradition that sets the tone on this disc. Robbie Fulks is one rare, delightful dude." —Request
