All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The Leo Kottke Anthology is a two-CD, 37-track retrospective of the first 15 years of Leo Kottke's recording career, drawing from over a dozen albums recorded between 1969 and 1983. This has a higher proportion of Kottke's vocals than some might expect, which may mildly disappoint fans who value his guitar virtuosity more than any of his other attributes. It's still a good, well-chosen compilation, leaning most heavily on his first three albums from the late '60s and early '70s, although this comprises less than half the set. It's also a good representation of both his original material and his wide-ranging abilities as an interpreter, with a diverse assortment of ...

Hall, and John McLaughlin. The liners include detailed comments on each track by Kottke himself.

    A One of A Kind Guitarist

    Leo Kottke is one of the odder niche artists out there. He is one of the great acoustic guitar players of our time, up there with Doc Watson and Chris Smither. He downplays his singing, but his vocal numbers have a weird resonance. (He is a rather quirky live performer also.) This anthology takes him through his most fertile years with Capitol and Chrysalis.The His Best BGO anthology concentrates on his Capitol years and is very fine also. It was made during the LP age and so its vocals were put on one side of a 2 LP set. I expect to soon upgrade my LP of it to CD.
