Gary Stewart has never fit comfortably into anyone's preconceptions about what a country singer should be. With a voice like Jerry Lee Lewis fed through a tremolo effect, and a hard-hitting approach to barroom ballads, Stewart has never been a part of any movement but very much his own man. He recorded for various labels earlier in his career, with varying success, but by the time he landed at indie haven Hightone, the renegade found just the right home, and this collection of latter-day recordings is uncommonly consistent. "Brand New Whiskey" demonstrates Stewart's ability to wring new variations on the time-tested format of the drinking song. "Nothin' But a Woman" flirts with southern rock courtesy of Warren Haynes's slide guitar. "I Get Drunk" is a humor-filled, self-penned tune full of self-effacement, while Stewart's take on Johnny Horton's rockabilly hit "Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor" is successfully updated without sounding overly modernized. Stewart's gift is in subtly twisting the conventions of country music to fit his own wonderfully skewed vision, a gift which is presented in abundance on this collection.

The Best of the Hightone Years Music Lover: from SIOUX LOOKOUT, ONTARIO CA -- April, 30, 2015

This is simply another home-run for Gary Stewart. There are songs on this CD that I have never heard him sing before but are sure to be taking their place in my heart as favourites. I really love this man's voice and wish he were still with us
