Thru the Years: A Retrospective (1981-1992)
collects the highlights from Funderburgh's
albums for Black Top, drawing from all the different bands he fronted in that decade or so. The best tracks remain his cuts with Sam Myers
or Darrell Nulisch
, but the finest songs from his lesser bands are included, making Thru the Years
an excellent way to get acquainted with the modern blues guitar hero.
