Overview

If you're familiar with Greg Brown's 16-CD catalog, you know it's more than good enough to justify this tribute album and the wider audience that the disc might help to bring. Certainly, it would be hard to imagine a better tribute than this one, which features consistently top-notch performances by both well-known and obscure female singer/songwriters. Most of Brown's best tracks are here, and they convey the full range of his talent -- the indelible melodies, the eye for detail, the ability to convey emotion, and the humor that runs through much of his work. Among the highlights: Lucinda Williams' reading of "Lately," which sounds so perfectly matched to her style that it could have been issued from her pen; Iris Dement's cover of "The Train Carrying Jimmie Rodgers Home," one of several tracks here that has the same sort of timeless feeling you get from the Band's music; and Shawn Colvin's lovely take on the lilting "Say a Little Prayer."
