San Francisco Days
Label: Wicked Game/Reprise
At his best, Chris Isaak stands apart from the crowd, crooning classic songs that sound out-of-time without being trapped in any one era. Remastered tracks like "Wicked Game" and "Blue Hotel" literally sound better than ever, while neglected gems like "Speak of the Devil" get another airing. Look at the title -- you can't lose -- this is Isaak's best, with a couple of new cuts thrown in for old fans.
