Released: Apr 2011
Label: Strut
On half of this Detroit guitar hero's comeback-at-age-70 album, he teams up with mostly Motor City-rooted garage-hipster soul fans (Mayer Hawthorne, for instance, and select Dirtbombs, Detroit Cobras, and Bellrays) to redo songs he cut decades ago with groups like Parliament. Surprisingly, the strongest rock vocal comes from U.K. pop star Paolo Nutini, in an update of 1970 Rodriguez obscurity "Only Good for Conversation" that stoner-stomps like heavy Cream. The rest is more instrumental breakbeat jams -- sometimes metallic, always funky, and often earning space-age titles like "Plutonius."
