Overview

Being called the next Bob Dylan wasn't exactly a good thing for Steve Forbert when he hit the scene in the late '70s, first because who on earth would want that hung around his neck, and second because his approach and style were nothing much like Dylan in the first place. It was a recipe for perceived failure, and although Forbert released four very decent albums for CBS Records between 1978 and 1982 and hit the Top 20 with the infectious "Romeo's Tune" in 1979, he was dropped from his contract with the label. This set packages some of the key tracks from his CBS years and adds four live cuts and a previously unreleased one, the intriguing "Samson and Delilah's Beauty Shop," to make a good introduction to this underappreciated singer and songwriter's early years.
