In The Bin [Issue
#24] Various Artists Endless Highway: The Music Of The Band
Pity the fool that would try to cover The Band, writes Artie Traum
on the liner notes of this tribute album. The 17 tracks here may not equal the
force of The Bands originals (yes, a tough assignment) but its interesting
to hear the different approaches taken by artists ranging from kindred bands like
Blues Traveler (Rag Mama Rag), and Gomez (Up On Cripple Creek)
to Steve Reynolds daring acoustic take on Stage Fright.
