A whole cottage industry has arisen, of these band tribute collections. I don't know about you, but most of these are real dogs. I just picked up this Sun Records music collection. What upsets me about this one, is it includes songs from a few "new" bands...Matchbox 20, Live, Kid Rock...that have ABSOLUTELY NO connection to what the music subject is, and they just go ahead and include a lame, straight cover, that isn't even an homage to the Sun Music Sound. What's up with that? I don't get it. I know why they included the bands...to get cross over music sales, where Old Farts like Jeff Beck, Bryan Ferry, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton don't seem to draw flies these days. But these new bands just don't have a clue...you might as well be listening to a rejected song than a reverential song styling...which I believe was the whole purpose to the project. The Old Farts, meanwhile, kick butt...McCartney finally relaxes and stops screaming, as he actually sings a great version of "That's All Right", Elton John takes off with "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On", Clapton surprises us with the Impressions as vocal backup on "Just Walkin' In The Rain". Bryan Ferry forsakes his trademark warbling song styling, for a straight version of "Don't Be Cruel". Dylan, Tom Petty, Johnny Halliday, and Van Morrison follow suit with faithful, reverential interpretations of their own. The highlight is Jimmy Page and Robert Plant a blistering and astoundingly tight as it could be played, "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It". It sounds like they are a new group audtioning for a record contract, as opposed to singing a tribute or interpreting...just magnificent! The only other tribute CD that I have picked up is the one on the Carpenters. This Sun Records tribute is mainly a bust, due to the "new" groups who ruin it and reveal they have no music roots!
