Album Review

1999's single-disc Classic JJ Cale: The Universal Masters Collection is as solid as the Chronicles double CD issued a few years prior, but without any of the filler. This one is loaded with 18 tracks from J.J. Cale's prime, including "Magnolia," "After Midnight," "Call Me the Breeze," "Cocaine," and more.
