Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Includes liner notes by Keb Mo and Stanley Crouch.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • Personnel: Taj Mahal (vocals, guitar).
  • Photographers: Guy Webster; David Gahr; Bob Cato; Don Peterson; Rod Dyer.
  • Arranger: Taj Mahal.
  • Columbia/Legacy's 2000 collection The Best of Taj Mahal is a first-rate overview of Taj Mahal's classic late-'60s/early-'70s work for Columbia. Spanning 17 tracks, including a previously unreleased cut "Sweet Mama Janisse" from 1970, this hits many of the key points from the records he released between 1967 and 1974, including "Statesboro Blues," "Leaving Trunk,' "She Caught the Katy and Left Me a Mule to Ride," and "Fishin Blues." Although his albums were constructed and worked as actual albums, this does an excellent job of summarizing these thematic affairs and functions as a nice introduction to Mahal's music. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Living Blues (5-6/01, p.90) - "...Mighty fine...he remains an adventurous and consistently interesting musician whose 'best' might always be yet to come..."
