Tracking Asleep at the Wheel's recording history is a bit like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. The band has released titles on at least 10 different labels, creating particular confusion for those interested in purchasing a "Best Of" compilation; nearly every label the band has recorded for has one, each claiming to contain the greatest hits. One such package is THE SWINGIN' BEST OF, which collects tracks from the band's three Epic albums and includes two Top 40 hits ("House of Blue Lights" and "Way Down Texas Way").
SWINGIN' BEST focuses primarily on 1987's 10 and 1988's WESTERN STANDARD TIME, although it also includes two tracks from an eponymous 1974 release (you can't miss them: the production is much rawer than on the other eight tunes). Serious fans of the band will probably want to buy the albums and skip the hits package; others may want to consider doing the same, especially since WESTERN STANDARD TIME is among the group's finest efforts. Those who opt for SWINGIN' BEST shouldn't be disappointed, however. As its title implies, it's a rock-solid collection from one of country's best traditionalist outfits.
