Dave Alvin first became known as the songwriter and lead guitarist for the Blasters, working alongside his vocalist brother, Phil. After Dave left the band, he embarked on a fruitful, Grammy-winning solo career, expanding on his love of Americana and developing his low, husky singing voice to deliver gritty, sharply written tunes. THE BEST OF THE HIGHTONE YEARS contains some of the finest moments of Alvin's post-Blasters output, as he delivers hard-bitten narratives of America's seedy underbelly in songs that incorporate blues, country, and R&B influences. There's also the occasional cover tune, like his version of pal/sometime-collaborator Tom Russell's "Blue Wing," but Alvin the songwriter is well represented on a collection that also includes his own version of "Fourth of July," the cult classic he wrote for X during his short stint in that band
