The Most of Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
With nine of the 11 songs from Dan Hicks' debut album, 1969's Original Recordings, and seven previously unreleased songs recorded for an unissued second album, this has most but not all of the tracks Hicks did for Epic at the outset of his career. The Original Recordings material, while perhaps under-produced, remains a charming mix of Western swing, dryly comic lyrics, and pop-jazz female backup harmony vocals.

Fans who've been following Hicks for a while will be most interested in the seven previously unavailable cuts, which are certainly up to official-release standard.

Nice stuff, but it's curious that two songs "It's Bad Grammar Baby" and "Shorty Falls in Love" from Original Songs were omitted, as there would have been plenty of space to accommodate them on this CD.
