Wesley Willis

Greatest Hits Vol. 3

Alternative Tentacles 309

Released on October 14, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


AT put this CD together KNOWING that Wesley would be around when it came out. Yet despite initial optimism in his battle against leukemia, his health took a turn for the worst and he passed away suddenly at the end of August at the age of 40. He will be greatly missed by his friends and hordes of music & art fans the world over.

This enhanced CD is a celebration of Wesley's life. Compiled by noted Wesley scholar Jello Biafra, "Greatest Hits, Volume 3" again culls the chestnuts from dozens of self-produced Wesley CDs, to unreleased and very early classics hardly anyone knew existed. Like Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Wesley Willis has created a persona so unique, no one dares try to imitate it. And boy has he put a spell on us. One-of-a-kind song topics and music vary much more the self-released CDs he sells on the road.

This CD has 25 songs and the enhanced part contains great video montage of Wesley as well as artwork, photos, sound samples, and liner notes. So stay tuned for a true harmony joyride from Rock & Roll's most beautiful mind & spirit - Wesley Willis. Rock Over London...Rock on Chicago...Long Live Wesley Willis.

Wes' post-humorous third greatest hits, and hopefully, not his last. I mean, shit, Elvis is somehow pumpin' out greatest hits CDs thirty years after death. Hey, wait, maybe Wes isn't dead either! In fact, maybe, oh yeah, but maybe he, "Tupe", and Elvis are all hidden away on the same desolate desert island, and are staging a return from the dead tour in five years! What? No? Oh, okay. Well, it'd be cool if they did. Anyhell, this volume's best feature isn't the music actually, but the linears written by Jello Biafra and Henry Rollins that I suppose were written before Wes' departure, but almost come off like touching eulogies, given the CD's release. The song collection is missing a few classics like "Illinois State Police" or "Kurt Cobain", and I'd give my right thumb to hear "I Killed Your Daddy After Midnight", but there's always hope. Best here are "Beware of Dog", "World Tour", "Your Way, Right Away", "If" (the line "Cast me into the lake of fire" just keeps getting funnier) and "verbal Assault". Start off with each greatest volume chronologically though, as this one I think is kind of weaker than Vols. 1 & 2, but it's a Wesley album through and through regardless. Rock over London / Rock on Chicago / Wheaties, it's the breakfast of champions! Good night, Wes.

Who can ever say anything bad about Wesley? This CD cracks my ass up everytime I hear it. I prefer Greatest Hits Vol. 2, because my all time favorite songs are on that one. But I can see some of the songs on this one becoming favorites to. Wesley Willis will always be remembered through his music. Rest in Peace Wes.
