by Cat Power
Released: Jan 2008
Cat Power pays tribute to those who inspired her by covering tunes associated with Sinatra, Lady Day, Dylan, Joni and the country music greats. Time will tell if Cat Power will join the pantheon of immortals, but Chan Marshall already ranks with the greatest singers of our generation. She's also grown as an interpretive artist since her first covers record. She breaks your heart on the country number "Silver Stallion," turns Sinatra's "New York, New York" into a slinky penthouse jaunt and even covers herself beautifully on "Metal Heart." She also records like her heroes: live in the studio.
