Paul Westerberg - Besterberg, Best Of Paul Westerberg [2005]


Paul Westerberg - Besterberg, Best Of Paul Westerberg [2005]

After the Replacements disbanded, singer-songwriter and alt-rock icon Paul Westerberg went on to an acclaimed solo career, first with two songs on the Singles: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack in 1992, and then with his revered 1993 solo debut, 14 Songs. Over the course of his subsequent albums, the legend of Westerberg's stellar song-craft and ragged and brilliant performances grew exponentially. For the first time, highlights of his post-Replacements work-including his Grandpa Boy incarnation-are collected on a single, inspired disc, with the added bonus of three previously unissued rarities in the mix!  (Amazon)

If you take a little bit of The Faces, throw in some Rolling Stones grit, a little bit of Alex Chilton/Big Star and maybe The Sex Pistols, you've got something that looks like Paul Westerberg music. I happen to be a fan of these artists, as I'm sure Mr. Westerberg is, so when I hear him distilling these elements in various ways I enjoy listening. A great and under-rated songwriter a cross section of Westerberg's best.
