When Junior Brown burst on the national scene in the early 1990s, aficionados of traditional country music immediately sat up and took notice. While several other modern artists had tried to capture the spirit of 1950s and '60s country prior to Brown's debut, here was a guy who possessed such a mastery of classic styles that he made Dwight Yoakam sound like Alabama. With a resonant baritone part Hank Thompson and part Johnny Cash, and a songwriting style that owed a major debt to his hero Ernest Tubb, Brown would have commanded attention even if he never picked up a guitar.
Junior, however, is also the undisputed master of the "guit-steel," a device of his own creation that combines an electric guitar and lap steel. In addition to possessing a virtuoso repertoire of vintage twangy Nashville licks, throughout GREATEST HITS Brown displays a rocker's love of pure sound, even drawing upon Speedy West and Jimi Hendrix in a single song ("Sugar Foot Rag"). In addition to early favorites such as "My Wife Thinks You're Dead," highlights include the blue-collar anthem "Joe the Singing Janitor" and "Semi-Crazy," a bouncy honky-tonker sung as a duet with trucker-country legend Red Simpson.
