Best of Chris Isaak

Review Chris Isaak begins his third decade as one of the most distinctive recording artists- and the epitome of modern cool-with his first career-spanning retrospective.
Beyond The Sun [2 CD Deluxe Edition]

Review Chris Isaak's new album FIRST COMES THE NIGHT produced by Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum), Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell) and longtime Isaak collaborator Mark Needham. Recorded primarily in Nashville and Los Angeles, FIRST COMES THE NIGHT is Isaak s 13th studio album consisting of 12 new songs. A second configuration a deluxe version with five additional cuts will be released simultaneously. It is Isaak s first recording of all original songs in over six years.
First Comes The Night

Review Deluxe two CD edition includes a bonus CD that contains 11 additional tracks. 2011 covers album from the singer/songwriter, a tribute to the influential sound of Sun Records and the artists who helped shape Rock 'n' Roll. Since he fell in love with his parents' 45s as a child in Stockton, California, this passionate writer/artist has been obsessed with the glory days of Memphis' Sun Studio and the visionary artists who got their starts there including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis...all of them discovered and nurtured by Sam Phillips. Now, at long last, Isaak magically recaptures the transformative brilliance of the classic sides cut by these greats at Sun with Phillips during the mid-'50s, while also getting down to the nitty-gritty of his own deeply rooted musical identity.

Baja Sessions

Review Chris Isaak managed to turn his videogenic visage and brooding masculinity to his advantage in a big way, becoming a sort of MTV-era cross between James Dean and Elvis. Heady stuff, but don't hate him because he's beautiful. In fact, Isaak had been plying his trademark latter-day rockabilly sound for some years before the inclusion of "Wicked Game" in the David Lynch film Wild at Heart jolted sales of Heart Shaped World. (But the stylish Herb Ritts video certainly didn't hurt, either.) Still, the album is a moody gem, featuring the pensive title track, the smoldering "Blue Spanish Sky," and, of course, "Wicked Game." If you still doubt Isaak's good intentions, though, check out the album's rockin' finale, a fine version of Bo Diddley's "Diddley Daddy." --Daniel Durchholz

San Francisco Days

Review With his striking good looks and sharp vocal stylings, Chris Isaak knows how to woo his fans. He successfully integrates modern touches into timeless songs with his suave singing, devilish lyrics and superlative stage presence. Highlights include Isaak's breakthrough hit "Wicked Game," the mesmerizing "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" as well as a stripped-down, acoustic set of six favorites. As a bonus, catch critically acclaimed Latin rocker, Raul Malo. Singer, songwriter, producer and front man of the Mavericks, Raul performs songs from his first solo album Today.
