This two-disc set finds blues and folk singer, songwriter, and guitarist Chris Smither celebrating his 50 years as a performer with re-recordings of some of his signature songs. The album was recorded in New Orleans and features guest spots from Allen Toussaint, Loudon Wainwright III, members of the band Morphine, and others, and the end result is a nice career retrospective and a good introduction to this solid singer, writer, and player for those who haven't heard him before. ~ Steve Leggett
