The Very Best of Travis Tritt

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
The career resurgence Travis Tritt has experienced since signing with Sony in 2000 is about ready for its own retrospective, but for now this choice 20-track overview, heavy on his powerhouse '90s Warner Bros. sides, completes a superb trifecta sampling (joining 2002's The Lovin' Side and Rockin' Side) of this durable artist's formidable hit-making history. All five of Tritt's chart-topping singles are here, from the surging 1990 plea "Help Me Hold On," off his debut (Country Club) to the heart-tugging, acoustic-driven confessional "Best of Intentions" (Down the Road I Go). The selections salute Tritt's songwriting, including one of the great kiss-off songs in country ...

The career resurgence Travis Tritt has experienced since signing with Sony in 2000 is about ready for its own retrospective, but for now this choice 20-track overview, heavy on his powerhouse '90s Warner Bros. sides, completes a superb trifecta sampling (joining 2002's The Lovin' Side and Rockin' Side) of this durable artist's formidable hit-making history. All five of Tritt's chart-topping singles are here, from the surging 1990 plea "Help Me Hold On," off his debut (Country Club) to the heart-tugging, acoustic-driven confessional "Best of Intentions" (Down the Road I Go). The selections salute Tritt's songwriting, including one of the great kiss-off songs in country history, the pitiless screed "Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)," a No. 3 single from 1991, and his collaborations with redoubtable tunesmiths on the order of Jill Colucci ("Anymore," another No. 1 from '91). Of course, any Travis Tritt hits collection would be incomplete without two of his most enduring chart-busters, both previously anthologized, both celebrating his honky-tonk history, namely the amiable duets with Marty Stuart on "The Whiskey Ain't Workin' " and "This One's Gonna Hurt You (For a Long, Long Time)." In choosing covers, his taste has proved impeccable -- included here is his old-timey, stomping version of Kostas's slyly topical "Lord Have Mercy on the Working Man" and his swaggering, keyboard-rich take on Steve Earle's bittersweet advisory "Sometimes She Forgets." With another studio album in the works, The Very Best is a stirring setup for some new music, especially with Tritt once again on a hot streak.
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Warner Brothers teamed with Rhino for The Very Best of Travis Tritt, the most comprehensive single-disc compilation of the rough-edged country singer's greatest hits to date. The two labels had teamed up in 2002 for a fine pair of Tritt collections -- The Rockin' Side and The Lovin' Side, each of which includes 16 songs -- but it's nice to have an all-encompassing single-disc collection like this one, especially for casual fans who don't want to buy two separate CDs. The Very Best includes the primary highlights from Tritt's Warner Brothers catalog, which began with Country Club 1990 and concluded with No More Looking Over My Shoulder 1998. Furthermore, The Very Best includes a pair of songs from Down the Road I Go 2000, Tritt's debut album for Columbia: "It's a Great Day to Be Alive" and "Best of Intentions," which charted number two and one, respectively. Plus, there are a few non-album inclusions, namely "Take It Easy," from the Eagles tribute album Common Thread 1993; the "Single Version" of Steve Earle's "Sometimes She Forgets," from Greatest Hits: From the Beginning 1995; and "This One's Gonna Hurt You For a Long, Long Time," from Marty Stuart's This One's Gonna Hurt You 1992. The only minor complaint is that The Very Best isn't sequenced chronologically. But at least the sequencing is logical, for the most part alternating uptempo songs with ballads. In the end, it's difficult to envision a better-compiled Warner Brothers-era single-disc collection of Tritt's music than The Very Best.
