A Quiet Normal Life: The Best Of Warren Zevon by American singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, originally released in October 1986 via Elektra Records.

Warren Zevon's body of work is a good bit more diverse and intelligent than you might imagine if you only know his music from the radio. While his relative hits ("Werewolves Of London", "Excitable Boy", "Lawyers, Guns And Money") play more like novelty songs than anything else, his best albums display a melodic sophistication that never gets in the way of his desire to rock out, and a lyrical perspective that's unusually literate, witty, and brutally cynical.

As one might expect, A Quiet Normal Life: The Best Of Warren Zevon focuses on the his best known stuff from his tenure at Asylum Records, and leans more towards "Crazy Warren" tunes (like the above-mentioned trio) over superior if more difficult material like "The French Inhaler" or "Frank and Jesse James," with no rare or unreleased material for completists. But you do get the most famous songs, which are invariably worth hearing (his own hits and tunes that were made famous by Linda Ronstadt, "Poor Poor Pitiful Me"), along with a few pleasant surprises, including the incendiary "Play It All Night Long" and one of Zevon's finest meditations on life in L.A., "Desperados Under The Eaves".

A Quiet Normal Life: The Best Of Warren Zevon will satisfy those with a casual interest in Zevon with a short sharp introduction to his best known tracks.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album: “Werewolves Of London”; “Desperados Under The Eves”; “Lawyers, Guns And Money” and “Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner”.

This Limited Edition, Reissued Album LP is on 140 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl with replicated artwork, and pressed in Europe.
