The Very Best Of The Low Rider


Guitarist Andy Fairweather Low has flown under rock radar here in the U.S. for the better part of four decades. A veteran cohort of Eric Clapton, The Who, Roger Waters, George Harrison and many more, The Low Rider features key tracks recorded by Low as a solo artist are reworked anew and collected on the Proper CD of The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low. Backed by a tight band, Low makes it clear why Eric Clapton likes Low’s approach both as guitarist and a singer-songwriter. He sounds just like him. Low Rider leads off with a fresh cover of the American Breed’s 1966 top 40 hit, “Bend Me Shape Me”—reworking the song as a classic ‘60s pop flashback. Other highlights includes covers of Low reworking his 1968 hit with Amen Corner, the pop evergreen “(If Paradise Is) Half As Nice” and a cover of the 1970 Move classic “Hello Susie,” which will surely bring a smile to Roy Wood’s face. Production by the by now famous Glyn Johns furthers this collection’s significance.
