The Rose of England. Wishing Well. Lovers Jamboree. All Men Are Liars. What's Shakin' On the Hill. Don't Think About Her. Fool Who Knows. Soulful Wind. The Beast In Me. I Live On a Battlefield. Shelley My Love. You Inspire Me. Lonesome Reverie. Faithless Lover. It's direct not just in name both reflecting Lowe's current stylistic bent and logically supplanting 's Basher: The Best of Nick Lowe but also because it begins with what may literally be the very best of Nick Lowe: the increasingly canonical " What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding".
That song could have appeared on this set in any of several different forms, each equally important to Lowe's career, albeit for different reasons. There's of course the popular and most recognizable version by Lowe's friend Elvis Costello. Then there's the stripped-down version Lowe typically plays live these days, indicative of the hushed turn his career has taken in its fourth decade.
The version that begins the new 2xCD best-of set, however, is by the marginal pub-rock band Brinsley Schwarz, the early outfit that gave Lowe his start. Buy a Gift Certificate. Customer Reviews.
