On the heels of their "Best of" release, Hootie & the Blowfish delivered a brand new studio album to their fans: "Looking For Lucky" in 2005. Singer Darius Rucker, guitarist Mark Bryan, bassist Dean Felber, and drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld are Hootie and the Blowfish.
The Best of Hootie and the Blowfish, highlights the first ten years of the band's career. The seventeensong disc is the first place that fans can get the recentlyrecorded rendition of "Goodbye Girl", recorded for TNT's television remake of the award-winning Neil Simon play. The Best Of... also includes a fan-chosen seventeenth track, "Not Even the Tree".
The song stood out as unusual and uplifting, a warmly rousing slab of pop rock powered by intense gospel. Before long, Cracked Rear View went to #1 as more Hootie singles continued to hit and hit hard: "Let Her Cry," which was followed by the sweet-natured Bob Dylan-salute, "Only Wanna Be With You," and "Time."
Hootie and the Blowfish's next album Fairweather Johnson featured such strong songs as "Be The One," "Old Man & Me (When I Get To Heaven)," and "Tucker's Town." 1998 then brought Musical Chairs which spawned the feel-good "I Will Wait," and "Only Lonely."
Scattered, Smothered & Covered seemed like a fitting bookmark to the first chapter of their career. So, with its release came a compilation of their best covers from over the years including "I Go Blind," a cover of a little known gem by the fine Canadian band 54-40. In 2003, Hootie & The Blowfish released the simply entitled Hootie & The Blowfish.
It's a collection that builds on past strengths while adding some new touches. With Looking For Lucky, The band added the hit single One Love, to their growing list of hits and fan favorites.
