Best Shots

Pat Benatar was a young woman trained as an opera singer, who led a jazz combo, who went on to become a heavy metal superstar. With such a diverse background, the work she did reflected her various tastes. From hard-hitting classics like "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Hell Is For Children," and "Heartbreaker," to the almost-but-not-quite-pop "Invincible," the theme from "The Legend of Billie Jean," BEST SHOTS is really excellent. She is backed, as always, by her husband, Neil Geraldo, on guitar, as well as the redoubtable Scott St. Clair Sheets, Roger Capps, and Myron Grombacher. Plus, there's even an appearance by Fernando Saunders (onetime bassist for Lou Reed, Marianne Faithfull, and others). Altogether, it's worth it. Definitely. -Anonymous
