Anyway The Wind Blows - The Anthology 2 x CDs,
This review is from: Anyway The Wind Blows: The Anthology (Audio CD)
As a response to the passing to JJ Cale I brought this compilation I had on LP years ago.
This compilation covers the classic songs from his early days such as Crazy Mama, After Midnight, Lies, and Cocaine.
There are also some less known classics such as Hey Baby and Carry On.
One of my favourites from this collection is the bluesy song Humdinger from 1984 album Travel-Log.
There are a few tracks that do pass by as some reviewers have mentioned, but the quality of JJ Cales smooth vocals and bluesy guitar work are so captivating they really drag me in and have a soothing effect.
Highly recommended to play in the car on a long drive, nothing is better than this CD for that purpose. Great booklet included with lots of nice reading and info on sessions etc.
The sound and mastering of these CDs is also top notch.
