Editors’ Notes Warrant singer/songwriter Jani Lane was never taken as seriously as he should’ve been. His abilities as a rock ’n’ roll songwriter who grew up on classic American AM radio were outshone by the band’s Hollywood glam-metal trappings. (Though without those trappings, Warrant might have toiled in obscurity.) This set highlights Warrant's hits and killer album cuts and shows why Lane deserves a closer listen. From the anti-slavery narrative of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” to the Cheap Trick lift of “Mr. Rainmaker” to the folky sadness of “I Saw Red” (heard all-acoustic here), it’s obvious that Lane had an empathetic way.
