Jimmy LaFave

Favorites 1992–2001 (Music Road)

A best-of collection from Jimmy LaFave's tenure on Colorado-based imprint Bohemia Beat, Favorites will be particularly interesting to longtime fans for three re-recordings, including the local Okie's signature tune, "Desperate Men Do Desperate Things." Lauded as a premier Dylan interpreter, his rendition of "Sweetheart Like You" is sure to thrill. At 16 tracks and more than 70 minutes long, Favorites is soon to become just that. ***
