I think I remember hearing that they were all tunes selected by John Kahn...great Motown stuff...Fantastic version of That's What Love...as well as Let it Rock and Hunter Gets Catured by the Game.. if memory serves...and the list goes on and on. If you don't have this album you should get it...I think there is a new release with additional tunes. Now that I think of it I should get that one.
Agreed, that's a great record - not a big fan of the version of "Let's Spend the Night Together" but otherwise I think Compliments is one of his better vocal efforts studio or live. Larry Carlton played some guitar on it too. I've done "What Goes Around" from this record.
I know that a lot of folks don't like the studio stuff but I do. They're a different animal than a live show but the good ones show a side of their musicianship that we don't get in a live show or recording. I am more of a fan of the stuff that isn't trying to sound like they do on stage. In the Dark and Built to Last just seemed like overly sterile live shows. Also an early recording of Wolf in action. Compliments & Cats are my two favorite Jerry solo records.
