A fast-paced, too-much-fun collection of some of Kirchen's best work for the HighTone label, recorded between 1997-2002. Includes several tracks by the all-star electric/steel guitar cabal known as the "Twangbangers," and not one, but two nine-minute long versions of Kirchen's signature piece, the constantly updated "Hot Rod Lincoln," in which he pays homage to countless iconic rock guitar riffs, from Hendrix to Duane Eddy, performed at a jovial, breakneck pace. There are also some great novelty tunes, such as "Womb To The Tomb" and "Truck Stop At The End Of The World," delivered in the gruff, gritty Kirchen style that fans have come to know and love. You'd to well to track down his individual albums as well, but this best-of set won't steer you wrong.
