Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

as predicted!
Not bad, though I don't rate Trouble as high as that. It's good, but there are better (Lee Hazlewoodism, Something Special, The Very Special World, and A House Safe For Tigers to name four.

I voted for Love & Other Crimes.

Love that Poet, Fool or Bum ad. I was looking through some late 60s/early 70s Rolling Stones recently and there are so many ads in that vein - large type, portentous message, a degree of assumed insider knowledge. It's a style of advertising that's completely outdated, never to return.

Missed this poll but would have voted Requiem. Love the spoken word interludes. I interviewed him in 2002 and it was such a buzz to hear him use pretty much exactly the same tone of voice. He also made quite a dent in a bottle of whisky and a packet of Marlboro Reds.

I picked up the vinyl of this on Record Store Day and it's stunning throughout. I only knew Hazelwood's most famous work (like the Poet, Fool or Bum upthread implies) but this has opened a whole 'nother world.

I have been meaning to buy this since it came out - a fair amount of it (a third?) is unfamiliar to me

Nobody Like You is amazing. And I guess Califia was the A side to that single. The rest of the best stuff is basically from other albums.

Regarding the poll I would have gone for Love and Other Crimes, it has an embarrassment of riches and most mere mortals would struggle to have such an abundance of great songs on a best of collection rather than an album. Every Time I listen to That Old Freight Train it reduces me to tears, its a fucking beautiful song.
