Let Us in Americana the Music of Paul Mccartney
by Various Artists
Released: Jun 2013
Label: Reviver Records
You'll know from the title whether this one's for you. If that title does appeal to you, start with the Wood Brothers' "Come and Get It" and continue through Buddy Miller's surprisingly compelling "Yellow Submarine" into Will Hoge's brass heavy take on "Band on the Run." Continuing, Jim Lauderdale introduces steel guitar to "I'm Looking Through" (a track seemingly made for this sort of exercise) and later Lee Ann Womack turns "Let 'Em In" into the unexpected highlight. And if the title doesn't appeal to you, don't fret: A collection of Americana renditions of Lennon songs is surely on the way.
