A chronicle of Robert Palmer’s wonderfully erratic career, including his funky sides with Little Feat & The Meters, cosmo-World Music for Island Records and his mega-fame hits via MTV & Power Station. This 2CD collection has it all, covering Palmer’s undervalued 20 year stretch of musical invention from 1974-1994, with a bonus from 2001 to explain the title. I’ve heard, known and owned many of these tracks over the years, but hearing them all back-to-back is a revelation. Despite his top-notch material, expressive 70s vocal chops and aching 80s cool, it requires an expansive collection like this to truly appreciate some of Palmer’s outside-the-box choices (his interpretations are some of his best work). It’s easy to bitch about the curious inclusion of remixed hits (from the compilations Addictions Volumes 1 & 2), but what are you gonna do? Early in his career, Palmer wasn’t much of a sales machine, so most know him only from his 80s video successes. That’s unfortunate, because there’s a whole world of Robert Palmer before MTV, and this collection provides a great opportunity to re-investigate his wild variety and consistent excellence.
