Personnel: George Thorogood (vocals, guitar); Jim Suhler (vocals, guitar); Buddy Leach (saxophone); Jeff Simon (drums, percussion).
George Thorogood's installment in Universal's Icon series serves up 11 basics, beginning with the obligatory "Bad to the Bone" and then running through '70s and '80s hits from Thorogood & the Destroyers. Not every one of his staples is here, but "Willie and the Hand Jive," "I Drink Alone," and "If You Don't Start Drinkin' (I'm Gonna Leave)" are, as are live versions of "Who Do You Love?" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." Not quite definitive but surely worth its budget-line price. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
