Product Description

Product Description

Walkin’ Man’: The Best Of Seasick Steve is a career spanning compilation of Steve’s most beloved tracks taken from his impressive catalogue which now features three gold and one platinum selling album.

BBC Review

When Seasick Steve broke commercially with 2006's Dog House Music, his second LP, breaching the UK top 40 and immediately improving the Bronzerat label’s coffers several times over, it was an entirely predictable turn of events. After all, a 65-year-old who’d spent large portions of his life as a hobo, working odd jobs as a carnie and a cowboy, and who played bizarre self-customised instruments consisting of car parts, duct tape and carpet was exactly what the mainstream was crying out for. It was written all over the charts of 2005: please, save us from this Coldplay and Kaiser Chiefs nonsense. Give us a bearded bluesman with an infectiously cheery grin and a back-story worthy of Hollywood adaptation, said the public. Possibly.

Whether they did or didn’t is moot (likely: not), as it’s precisely what we got. And things got even better for the man born Steven Gene Wold back in 1941: his third collection, I Started Out With Nothin’ and I Still Got Most of It Left, was a major label debut that peaked at an impressive nine on these shores, and sold well enough internationally to make world tours a viable option. 2009’s Man From Another Time broke the UK top five, and 2011’s You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks was his third UK top 10 hit in a row. Inspiration might be in short supply for Steve these days, with lyrical tropes recycled enough times to have the Scotch Tape skeleton in a fade-away panic, but perspiration – breathlessly boisterous live performances that laugh in the face of old age – has carried Seasick Steve to heights that his midlife self could never have foreseen.

Walkin’ Man is his first best-of set. At 21 tracks it’s possibly twice as long as it might be – but it certainly offers value for the first-timer, taking in cuts from each of his five LPs. A deluxe edition is backed by a DVD featuring Steve in action at London’s Brixton Academy: it’s in this environment where he really shines, his innate showmanship filling the very biggest venues the world can offer (he’s previously sold out the Royal Albert Hall, as well as lighting up stages at Glastonbury and Latitude).

But the studio recordings are certainly engaging affairs, raucous and rippling with a fevered energy that frequently threatens to explode into a brilliant, blinding frenzy – even if, sometimes, the tracks don’t really peak. Diddley Bo, the opener of Man From Another Time, is one amazing break away from glory; similarly, Cheap – the title-track of Steve’s 2004 debut – locks into a fine groove but never quite makes good on its explosive potential. Early tracks are naturally rather lower in fidelity than their bigger-budget cousins, but throughout the man at the centre is a charmer with a great story or two in him.

Twenty-one tales he doesn’t have; but few have grown tired of hearing the same old same old just yet.

Format: Audio CD
For a start this two disc set comes in a very nice embossed silver and colour wash slip case, and it looks very good.THe booklet is a summary of all of his albums, covers photos and tracl listings.So to what this set offers firstly the CD,it's a very generous 21 tracks worth over 78 minutes playing time of his best songs, they sound really great and there well have been some remastering but certainly have lost nothing if they have.Songs from every album, but the set listing is very well done and the whole disc is full of real treasures by this most carismatic of blues based artists,opening with 'Dog House Boogie' that set his success off when he first appeared on Jools Holland's Later show, through tracks like 'Diddley Bo', 'Happy Man', '8 Ball', and of course the title track 'Walkin' Man'.Sure I've got the albums but this is a superb was to get them afresh, or if you have nothing by the great man here's one fantastic place to start your collection. This alone is easily worth five stars, but hold on there's more. The second disc is a DVD, and this contains a full gig at the Brixton O2 Acadamy, nineteen songs with a couple of extra musicians including some wonderful double bassplayed by Amy LaVere and some extra guitar and percussion from I believe Steve's son Paul Martin Wold, who also sings one of his songs as well.Of course we musn't forget Steve's drummer DAan Magnusson, who's a key bpart of Steve's sound both live and in the studio,this live set is worth the price of the set alone,but wait there's even more.Yes , we also get the documentary BBC made of him going back to his Mississippi roots.Many fans have been after this since it was first shown a few months ago, so here it is, and one of those you could watch again and again, very rare in many docu type films.Read more ›

If you like your blues, raw or otherwise Seasick Steve is the guy for you. A selection that should please the most demanding customer and give you an insight to a superb musician who Started Out With Nothing but has consistently delivered from the Doghouse to his audience.

Having bought all Seasick Steve's albums so far it was a debate whether to get this "Best of" hits and the fact the deluxe version comes with a full live DVD swung it for me, and this set is very good value for money.
Seasick Steve is really an enigma in modern music with such a raw homemade sound and heartfelt blues lyrics and this compilation really showcases his talents as well as gives a great introduction to anyone who does not know his music yet.

The fact that in 2011 in the day of plastic pop a man can come along with home made instruments and sing blues and folk songs is a real pleasure, I say if you like real music welcome to Seasick Steve the worlds most famous Hobo.

Brilliant album, now I've got the "best of" I want to buy his other albums. Chilled out, laid back and moody - really good listening.

The Hobo with the groove, Seasick Steve the phenomenon of the last few years, brought to the worlds attention by Jools Holland and star of many a festival during the season, gets a compilation coving all his albums and EPs.
The music is pretty heartfelt blues style, and always has a charm and a great story, and for someone who could be considered a one trick pony there is actually a lot of variety in the tunes music and accompaniment. I have to say that this collection held my concentration for the full 21 tracks, and it does hang together well as a compilation. As an added bonus you get a great nicely filmed concert from the O2 and the wonderful Documentary with Steve travelling back to his roots. My only gripe a bit more information on the tracks would be useful in the booklet.
Very much an upbeat and fine collection of a great musician and storyteller, and a must for pretty much anyone who like Blues music.

Having seen and heard Seasick Steve on TV I decided to buy on of his albums. This is a good mix of his styles and for me perfect to listen to when I'm driving. It arrived slightly ahead of the time quoted and the price was definitely right so a good deal all round.
