It's amazing to think that the great Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, one of the world's greatest session guitarists, has never recorded an official studio album. He originally played with the Boston based psychedelic/hard rock/blues band, Ultimate Spinach, before his legendary contributions to albums by Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers,Joni Mitchell, Freddie Hubbard, Little Feat, Judy Collins, Al Kooper, Spirit, Carl Wilson, Linda Ronstadt ...The list goes on forever! Jeff works with a large number of musicians spanning a large number of musical styles. He is still involved with playing guitar, but also produces several albums. Jeff's guitar solo on Steely Dan's "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" from the Dan's "Pretzel Logic" is a musical milestone in guitar solos, and is just one example of Jeff Baxter's incredible guitar skills.

"Plays The Hits" includes eleven tracks which include Jeff's work. Again, it's a shame there are no solo albums available from this brilliant guitarist. "Plays The Hits" is not Jeff's best work. That would probably be with Steely Dan, and The Doobie Brothers, where his work was of paramount importance and an integral part of these bands' sounds. The album here includes Jeff's work with artists like Strat Cats, Todd Rundgren, Pearl Aday, Eric Singer, Doane Perry, Edgar Winter, Bonnie Bramlett and others, and from tribute albums to bands/artists like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Shania Twain. Jeff's work is not always to the forefront on many of these tracks, sung by various artists, but the album still gives some idea of Jeff's guitar talents and invaluable contributions. Listen to Steely Dan's "Can't Buy a Thrill" and "Pretzel Logic" albums, and the Doobie Brother's " What Once Were Vices Are Now Habits" album for a more centred view of Jeff "Skunk" Baxter's versatility
