Pruning 16 tracks from Hopkins' extensive catalog for a best-of meant that some hard choices had to be made. The ones Rhino came up with won't satisfy everyone, but the label did take the correct road by sticking exclusively to the earliest part of his career, 1947-61. Perhaps the decision will offend some fans who feel that his 1960s and '70s work should be represented, but two things should be acknowledged. First, Hopkins, as is the case with most artists, did his most interesting recordings in the earlier part of his career. Second, as is the case with many blues artists, he did not vary his approach substantially throughout the decades. So what you have is a good assortment of his first 15 years on disc, taken from about ten labels, including both originals and covers, and placing the singer/guitarist in various instrumental contexts: with a full electric band (Sonny Terry is on a couple of 1961 cuts), as a solo guitarist, or accompanied by nothing more than a bass or additional guitarist.

This compilation, though not comprehensive, is an interesting mix of the well-known and the obscure. It opens with what is probably Reed's most delicate love song, the poignant Perfect Day. His biggest hit, Walk On The Wild Side, follows and then there's the charming Vicious. All the aforementioned tracks are from his highly successful Transformer album.
I Love You Suzanne is a buoyant ditty from one of his lesser-known 1980s albums, but a memorable love song all the same, whilst Caroline Says II and Berlin come from the bleak Berlin album of the early 1970s. I Want To Boogie With You, Last Shot an the humorous I Wanna Be Black are also drawn from more or less obscure albums, although they're all great songs.
Sally Can't Dance and Coney Island Baby are more classics from the 1970s, the first a jerkily rhythmic track and the second a brooding slow song. The album concludes with the melodious Satellite Of Love, a most poetic and moving number.

An icon of flower power who emerged as a folksinger but later gained hits like "Sunshine Superman" with bright psychedelic pop. Upon his emergence during the mid-'60s, Donovan was anointed "Britain's answer to Bob Dylan," a facile but largely unfounded comparison which compromised the Scottish folk-pop troubadour's own unique vision. Where the thrust of Dylan's music remains its bleak introspection and bitter realism, Donovan fully embraced the wide-eyed optimism of the flower power movement, his ethereal, ornate songs radiating a mystical beauty and childlike wonder; for better or worse, his recordings remain quintessential artifacts of the psychedelic era, capturing the peace and love idealism of their time to perfection. The Very Best Of includes all of the Scottish folk rocker's biggest smashes. Features 'Mellow Yellow', 'Sunshine Superman', 'Hurdy Gurdy Man', 'Jennifer Juniper', 'Riki Tiki Tavi' & much more.

Joshua Rifkin made three LPs of Joplin for Nonesuch between 1970 and 1974 – a total of 24 rags. The first LP soon became an unanticipated bestseller; the other two followed at a leisurely pace, since Rifkin was also a busy musicologist; and meanwhile the film, "The Sting", helped to cement the Joplin revival by bringing ragtime to the widest public. This collection of 17 rags is carefully balanced and invariably as musically conscientious as if he were playing Mozart. These performances of Rifkin’s have stood repetition for some 25 years. "The Entertainer", for example, sounds just as fresh here as when it was written. There are times when Rifkin’s rare ornamentation in repeats seems slightly stilted, but he always respects the style of the period and there’s nothing jarring. And now – at this distance – these historic performances are successfully transferred to CD. –Peter Dickinson
