Robert Palmer - At His Very Best

They didn't waste much time cashing in on Robert Palmer's death with this 19-track compilation, complete with a short bonus DVD containing the infamous "Addicted To Love" video and a handful of others. If you're a fan of Palmer's bombastic '80s style, you will approve of the selection.
