Very Best of Jimmy Clanton [Ace]

Very Best of Jimmy Clanton [Ace]

One might think from the title that this 15-track disc largely duplicates Music Club's "best-of" anthology This Is Jimmy Clanton. Actually, though, only five tracks appear on both compilations, so this is a worthy supplement to This Is Jimmy Clanton if you want to hear more from the vocalist. Both CDs include the three major hits ("Venus in Blue Jeans," See more details below

Overview

One might think from the title that this 15-track disc largely duplicates Music Club's "best-of" anthology This Is Jimmy Clanton. Actually, though, only five tracks appear on both compilations, so this is a worthy supplement to This Is Jimmy Clanton if you want to hear more from the vocalist. Both CDs include the three major hits ("Venus in Blue Jeans," "Go, Jimmy, Go," "Just a Dream"). The material on Very Best Of that's not duplicated on the Music Club collection varies from soppy pop ballads to pretty respectable New Orleans R&B; his cover of "You Win Again," for instance, employs an arrangement extremely reminiscent of Barbara George's hit "I Know." Chuck Willis in particular seems to have been a big influence on Clanton, who offers covers of "See See Rider," "Feel So Bad," and "What Am I Living For." It's let down a little by the packaging, though; there are no liner notes or songwriting credits, and one of the tracks listed on the sleeve, "To Love," is not actually on the CD.
