EDITORS’ NOTES

The combination of Darius Rucker’s baritone growl, his bandmates’ sunshine-bright riffing, and joyful harmonizing helped Hootie & The Blowfish become one of the premier pop-rock bands of the ‘90s. This compilation collects songs from their first 10 years in the national spotlight, including the stirring “Hold My Hand,” which marries stretched-out blues-rock to a gospel-tinged chorus, and the good-humoured jangle of “Only Wanna Be with You.” Covers of Led Zeppelin, Bill Withers, and David Gates reveal the group’s varied influences.

Gold!

Not a particular favourite at first but I gave them a chance and totally changed my mind. This is up there with Creed's, Greenday's and the Verve's greatest hits album! Pure gold, pure classics, pure nineties!
