Wilko Johnson - Back In The Night: The Best Of Wilko Johnson

This collection includes unreleased tracks and new solo versions of Dr Feelgood classics like "Back In The Night". Wilko's nasal twang is endearingly English, the material is more varied than you'd expect, and the former Blockheads bassist Norman Watt-Roy and drummer (Steve) Monti form a solid foundation to anchor the eccentric axeman down. British blues doesn't get much better than this, and it never did.
