Though an album of cover songs, ''Perfect Day'' is in no way unoriginal. Chris Whitley together with Billy Martin and Chris Wood from Medeski Martin & Wood, set a precendent for veracity from the first desire filled Dylan song ''Spanish Harlem Incident'', through the last ''4th Time Around''. This album is not about athletics. It's not about singing, or guitar playing,or bass playing, or drums (though I don't think it's always ''drums'' as we know it). If you are looking for MUSIC, for music that feels, music that translates what is nearly impossible, then you cannot let this one pass. The title track ''Perfect Day''(Lou Reed) is possibly the most telling song on the album. A translating album, ''Perfect Day'' reminds us all what it is to touch the skyWas this review helpful?
