There are a few short-but-sweet collections out there for anyone seeking a basic George Thorogood primer, but those who want a more intensive investigation of the blues-rock baron's catalog should home in on this 30-track best-of. Anthology not only catches all the barroom rocker's biggest hits; it also features a buoyant batch of live recordings and some deep cuts to fill out the picture. "I feel like gettin' dirty tonight," Thorogood shouts as he roars into a no-nonsense live version of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode." The grittiness ingrained in every note from Thorogood's mouth and guitar is a testament to his decades of blasting out blues and old-school rock 'n' roll all across America.

Thorogood's music was always loud, simple, and direct — his riffs and licks were taken straight out of '50s Chicago blues and rock & roll — but his formulaic approach helped him gain a rather large audience...
