"THE OLD SHEL GAME"SHEL SILVERSTEIN-THE BEST OF SHEL SILVERSTEIN/HIS WORDS HIS SONG HIS FRIENDS: Uninhibited, imaginative author/illustrator of the famous children's books WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS and A LIGHT IN THE ATTIC, a frequent contributor to PLAYBOY magazine and a hit songwriter...just some of the many hats that wily SHEL SILVERSTEIN wore, always infusing his work with an eclectic wit and ribald humor. SHEL performs a few well loved, twisted pieces such as I GOT STONED AND I MISSED IT and SARAH CYNTHIA SYLVIA STOUT in his expressive, gravelly talk/sing voice on this long overdue tribute. Timeless chart makers by other artists included here are THE UNICORN, a huge smash for THE IRISH ROVERS and A BOY NAMED SUE, one of JOHNNY CASH's last (and most iconic) hits. SILVERSTEIN's greatest interpreters, the raunchy DR. HOOK & THE MEDICINE SHOW, are represented here by COVER OF THE ROLLING STONE, FREAKIN' AT THE FREAKER'S BALL and QUEEN OF THE SILVER DOLLAR, vividly descriptive sagas of quirky wordplay and trademark debauchery. They also get off the winsome ballad SYLVIA'S MOTHER, while country star BOBBY BARE performs the tearjerker DADDY WHAT IF, spotlighting the reflective side of SILVERSTEIN's vast catalogue. SHEL SILVERSTEIN claims to have had no songwriting influences at all...it may sound like another of his greasy tall tales, but after sampling BEST OF's irreverent treasure trove, one can almost believe that declaration.RATING: FIVE COPIES FOR MY MOTHER!
