DONAVON FRANKENREITER

Recycled Recipes

2007-08-20

In Recycled Recipes, Donavon Frankenreiter's 6-track acoustic EP, the once pro surfer (who sports a Jim Croce-style moustache) tries his hand at covers. His wispy voice and delicate harmonies play out well for Bruce Cockburn's "Wondering Where the Lions Are" and Wilco's "Theologians." Dr. John's piano blues hit, "Such a Night," is a much-altered recipe with an added snap-py chorus. Despite the promise of the first three tracks, the last three seem to fall short. Creedance Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son," The Band's "It Makes No Difference" and Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" all lack the ingredient that made the original recipes so inspiring ... spice.
