Digitally remastered single disc collection of the blue eyed rocker includes two new tracks and two remixes.
Most people primarily know Robert Palmer as the smooth crooner surrounded by sultry, black-clad models in the hit video for "Addicted to Love". Yet At His Very Best reveals him to be far more than simply a suave lady-killer. Indeed, he could be considered one of the finest white soul singers of his generation. Of course, his 1980s heyday is well represented here. "Addicted to Love" is a stand-out, alongside such hits as "Some Guys Have All the Luck", "Simply Irresistible" and "Some Like It Hot", the big hit he shared with Duran Duran's John and Andy Taylor as the Power Station. But fans will also enjoy the disco stylings of 1978's "Every Kinda People" (written by Free's Andy Fraser), the swampy funk of 1974's "Sneakin' Sally Thru the Alley" and a minimalistic but driving cover of ZZ Top's hilariously dumb "TV Dinners". This last track is a telling choice. Though Palmer is a serious student of music, he has always exhibited a gratifying sense of humour, a quality that's contributed mightily to his long-standing success. He's a wealthy man, and a diamond geezer. --Dominic Wills

What is wrong with this compilation are the remixed versions of "Bad case of loving you" and "Looking for clues". These remixes appeared on an earlier Palmer compilationn and have resurfaced again on this! Why? Apparently Palmer re-recorded these and other early songs a few years back because he wasn't happy with the originals. Unfortunately, the originals are brilliant, and should have been included. Based on reviews for the American equivalent of this compilation, other customers agree with me.
The CD also includes two new songs recorded before his untimely death.
