  • Jazz-pop maestro Michael Franks carved out a distinctive niche for himself in the 1970s and `80s with his smooth, clever, easygoing singer-songwriter fare. This 15-track compilation provides the perfect introduction to his output, encompassing early pop hits like "Popsicle Toes" and "The Lady Wants to Know," along with gauzy ballads like "Tiger in the Rain" and jazzy `80s hits like "Island Life." Franks's cheeky way with a lyric and sleek, radio-ready sound may be off-putting to some, but repeated listens reveal how well-crafted his songs and arrangements really are. A BACKWARD GLANCE is the premiere Franks primer.
