Where the first Best of the Turtles compilation from Rhino focused on the group's many hit singles, Turtle Wax goes in the opposite direction, spotlighting the singles that just didn't click for whatever reason. In this sense it serves the same purpose as Joni Mitchell's Misses accompaniment to her Hits collection…

LaVern Baker - Soul on Fire: The Best of LaVern Baker (1991)  Music

Simply put, LaVern Baker, one of the greatest vocalists in Atlantic Records' history, could sing anything, as she proved again and again during a seven-year run of chart hits that began with 1955's "Tweedle Dee" and culminated in 1963's "See See Rider." Her material, supplied by many of the era's greatest songwriters (Leiber-Stoller, Pomus-Shuman, and many others), encouraged her to draw on her gospel and big band backgrounds in exploring the emotional subtext of serious ruminations on life such as "Saved" and the powerful "Soul on Fire." The latter was her first Atlantic single, and on it she used virtually every vocal technique at her command to bring out the slow-burning sensuality of the Ahmet Ertegun-penned gem of erotic longing. Thus was notice served, and, in the glorious years that followed, Baker cut a swath wide enough that her name and label-mate Ruth Brown's were spoken in the same reverent terms, sotto voce. The 20 tracks here remain as vital today as they were indispensable to the music's evolution in her own time. –David McGee

Super Furry Animals - Zoom! The Best of 1995-2016 (2016)  Music

Super Furry Animals - Zoom! The Best of 1995-2016 (2016)
Alternative, Indie Rock, Britpop | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 02:35:20 | 363 MB
Label: BMG | Release Year: 2016

With a few more albums to play with than 2004's Songbook - a straightforward collection of the singles to date - the two discs of Zoom! take a few more liberties with the history of Super Furry Animals. All the singles are present and correct, but it's the strays which are the most rewarding. 1999's stunning slice of psych rock, "Citizen's Band", is finally released in a format which doesn't involve numbing your index finger on the rewind button when your copy of "Guerrilla" is in the player, while once-unheralded b-sides like "Patience" and fan-favourite deep cuts "Receptacle for the Respectable" and "Run! Christian, Run!" (both from 2001's maximalist masterpiece Rings Around the World) are finally getting a wider due.

Being called the next Bob Dylan wasn't exactly a good thing for Steve Forbert when he hit the scene in the late '70s, first because who on earth would want that hung around his neck, and second because his approach and style were nothing much like Dylan in the first place. It was a recipe for perceived failure, and although Forbert released four very decent albums for CBS Records between 1978 and 1982 and hit the Top 20 with the infectious "Romeo's Tune" in 1979, he was dropped from his contract with the label. This set packages some of the key tracks from his CBS years and adds four live cuts and a previously unreleased one, the intriguing "Samson and Delilah's Beauty Shop," to make a good introduction to this underappreciated singer and songwriter's early years.
