Best of – Chris Isaak

Chris Isaak’s claim to fame is that he spat on me during a performance at the Royal Court in Liverpool in the 1990s. I forgave him, of course, purely because he was unaware I was there to be frank.

Anyway, this compilation brings together all Isaak’s best songs about broken relationships up to about 2003ish. It’s a good compilation.

Isaak has, of late, gone down the route of other songsmiths of similar calibre, focussing on the songs of those that came before them. While this is a good move on a creative scale, I worry that all originality might start to suffer. Like it did with Bryan Ferry. Still, while you can still listen to his better tunes on a Best of  compilation, I don’t think we have to worry too much.
