Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-05-05Eclectic is a word to describe things that may be a little different then the norm well this CD is all that & more. Robin Danar has been a producer, sound-man & visionary for such artists as Blondie, The Ramones, the B-52’s, Paul Simon, Donald Fagen & Shawn Colvin. This CD Robin brings together 15 talented & yes very eclectic artists to do their takes of many classic tracks. The CD begins with Inara George daughter of the late great Lowell George & The Bird & the Bee performing the Johnny Mathis track “Chances Are”. Inra does a great Patsy Cline sound on this track. Lisa Loeb does a really cool version of the punk song from the Dammed “Video Nasty” Paul Buchanan from the Blue Nile tackles the Pretenders classic “Message of Love” Jim Bianco does a really angry version of the Talking Heads “Life During Wartime” and the CD with concludes with a great combination of the Bands “the Last Waltz” that leads into the Dr. John classic “Such A Night”. The interpretations of these classic tracks are well done, interesting & yes different enough to take it’s listeners to an Altered State. - Gregg Saur
