The Essential Popa Chubby

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Featuring all the hits you need from his 2000 to 2010 catalog, The Essential Popa Chubby is a great primer for newcomers and an easily portable hits collection for fans on their way to another blistering show. Speaking of the electric bluesman's live show, three cuts off his live album Big Man Big Guitar are included here, all of them prime examples of how the stage trumps a sterile studio when it comes to Popa's gritty sound.
