Thanks for the Melodies
There's something about this season that inspires us to salute our forebears, and the folkies aren't holding back. In a bevy of recent albums, they raise their voices in tribute to the singer-songwriters who have inspired and affected them the most.
Various Artists: I WANNA BE KATE: The Songs of Kate Bush (Brown Star) It's not just folk-singers who feel compelled to pay homage to the the musicians who have influenced them. The power of singer-songwriter Kate Bush's lush, emotional music is captured and reinterpreted here by Syd Straw, members of Poi Dog Pondering, and other Chicago area artists.
