The title song from Cat Power’s blockbuster record The Greatest opens the album with the same halting, thick-fingered piano style Marshall has relied on since 2000’s The Covers Record, but here it’s swathed in Henry Mancini strings, teary delay effects, gently nudging drums, and Marshall’s own multi-tracked voice echoing her lead vocals like Mary and Flo on. the Supremes' loveliest ballads. The Greatest, with its evocative lyrics of nostalgia and regret is, like Colors and the Kids and Good Woman before it, bleakness at its most pristine. The Greatest" Track Info

The Greatest (no, it's not a hits collection) makes it clear just how much Chan Marshall grows with each album she releases. Three years on from You Are Free, she sounds reinvented yet again: Marshall returned to Memphis, TN - where she recorded What Would the Community Think nearly a decade earlier - to make an homage to the Southern soul and pop she listened to as a young girl.
