Robbie Robertson does have a dark, rough voice...and it works wonderfully for his music ( he's no Tom Waits, though). The vocals aren't doctored up with a bunch of added effects and overdubbing like many pop singers, because this isn't pop. You want computer-assisted, butter & honey vocals, go listen to Justin Timberlake. You want true emotional, powerful, real singing, get this CD. The music is great, and you'll want to hear this CD many times over. Personally, I would have chosen a couple of different songs from his newer stuff from the last 10< years, and included some of his work from The Band. Still, this collection represents his musical style and artistic mastery very well. For those who are new to his music, I suggest this CD as a starting point from which you can pursue your own personal tastes in Robertson's vast repertiore.
