The career resurgence Travis Tritt has experienced since signing with Sony in 2000 is about ready for its own retrospective, but for now this choice 20-track overview, heavy on his powerhouse '90s Warner Bros. sides, completes a superb trifecta sampling (joining 2002's The Lovin' Side and Rockin' Side) of this durable artist's formidable hit-making history. All five of Tritt's chart-topping singles are here, from the surging 1990 plea "Help Me Hold On," off his debut (Country Club) to the heart-tugging, acoustic-driven confessional "Best of Intentions" (Down the Road I Go). The selections salute Tritt's songwriting, including one of the great kiss-off songs in country history, the pitiless screed "Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)," a No. 3 single from 1991, and his collaborations with redoubtable tunesmiths on the order of Jill Colucci ("Anymore," another No. 1 from '91). Of course, any Travis Tritt hits collection would be incomplete without two of his most enduring chart-busters, both previously anthologized, both celebrating his honky-tonk history, namely the amiable duets with Marty Stuart on "The Whiskey Ain't Workin' " and "This One's Gonna Hurt You (For a Long, Long Time)." In choosing covers, his taste has proved impeccable -- included here is his old-timey, stomping version of Kostas's slyly topical "Lord Have Mercy on the Working Man" and his swaggering, keyboard-rich take on Steve Earle's bittersweet advisory "Sometimes She Forgets." With another studio album in the works, The Very Best is a stirring setup for some new music, especially with Tritt once again on a hot streak.
