Not all the hits but 2 new songs !
on 22 January 2003
On one hand, "At his very best" is more than just another compilation of Robert Palmer's hits as it features 2 brand new tracks : "Need your love so bad" and ZZ Top's "TV dinners" (both will also be released on RP's forthcoming new album "Drive").
On the other hand, it is still not the perfect anthology of the man's career.
Some hits are missing ("Get it on", "Know by now"...), there is not much from the excellent early recordings and some songs are given in remixed versions which, in my opinion, are not as good as the originals.
Anyway, it is a good collection of songs from a very underrated artist.
