The larger-than-life image of the bear of a man that was Hoyt Axton was comprised of many parts artist, actor, athlete, philosopher but above all, storyteller and songwriter. Songwriting was, he once said, the key to his life and the constant driving force throughout. The son of the woman who wrote "Heartbreak Hotel", Hoyt wrote his own classics including hits for The Kingston Trio ("Greenback Dollar"), Three Dog Night ("Joy The World"), Steppenwolf ("The Pusher"), Ringo Starr ("No No Song") and others. All of these and more are included in this long-overdue, 25-track, 78-minute anthology covering almost four full decades of recording, culled from his stays with 20th Century, Columbia, Jeremiah, Capitol, A&M, MCA etc. Truly the Very Best of Hoyt Axton. Featuring two duets with Linda Ronstadt, detailed liner notes and rare photographs.
