This posthumous compilation, released on Goodman's own Red Pajamas label, spans two discs: the first highlighting his best studio cuts, with the second disc exclusively devoted to live tracks. About half of the songs are previously unreleased material or unreleased live recordings. This is probably overkill for the casual fan who just wants the "hits." Diehard Goodman aficionados, however, are in luck. The live disc especially brings out the artist's witty, versatile songwriting personality, showing how he could work a crowd by not taking the material (or himself) too seriously. Copious liner notes from close friends and family pay tribute to Goodman the man, songwriter, and performer. An essential buy for completists (due to the unreleased material), the compilation takes material from Goodman's Buddah and Asylum albums, making it perhaps the best survey of his career to date. ~ Jim Esch
