This is not a new idea: in 2001 the English label Indigo produced a collection of Beatles songs by British and American blues artists. That was patchy, and so is this. The Beatles' heavy-handed treatment of "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?" was intended (surely?) to be a joke, so for Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers to roll it flat like a steamroller is kind of missing the point. Pity it's the first track. In fact it's a pity the whole album wasn't reshuffled, because the best stuff only begins to appear about halfway through. Maria Muldaur's reading of "Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da" leeches out all its cuteness, Chris Duarte's guitar-playing in "I'm So Tired" belies the title, Charlie Musselwhite and Colin Linden go arm-in-arm with harmonica and guitar to take "Dear Prudence" for a long walk and Linden also makes a pretty country blues in the style of Mississippi John Hurt out of "Blackbird".

Songs Of Led Zeppelin: All Blues'd Up! is a Led Zeppelin tribute album released in 2003 by Hey Presto! England. Most of the songs are Led Zeppelin covers while a few are songs Led Zeppelin covered themselves or steal, so you get to hear "Whole Lotta Love" as "You Need Love" and Bukka White's "When The Levee Breaks" performed by Magic Slim with John Cotton. This one is fierce.

Blues Rock | Label: Megaforce Records, Raisin Music

Three generations of Chicago blues Greats blow a Windy City gust through decades of Rolling Stones songs on Chicago Plays the Stones. The all-star album - produced by three-time Grammy nominee Larry Skoller in partnership with the Chicago Blues Experience and inspired by the Chicago residency of the Rolling Stones' 54-year-spanning, world-touring exhibit Exhibitionism - plays like a swaggering answer to the Stones' Blue and Lonesome, but in fact was conceived prior to the Rolling Stones release.

Genre: Jazz | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Voiceprint (VP373CD)

A jazz piano-bass-drums trio performing the songs of the rock group King Crimson? That's what the Crimson Jazz Trio accomplished on this intriguing CD, King Crimson Songbook, Vol. 1, the first of several. By re-harmonizing the music a bit, adding vamps, and digging into the grooves, the Crimson Jazz Trio transforms the pieces from rock anthems into viable devices for jazz improvisations. Electric bassist Tim Landers has nearly as much solo space as pianist Jody Nardone; the trio (which also includes drummer Ian Wallace) works together very closely and they not only create new versions of unexpected material, but show that they have developed their own group sound. Recommended, particularly to listeners who are familiar with King Crimson's recordings.

Mellow Records' Gentle Giant tribute album, Giant for a Life, is something of a mixed bag. Containing everything from attempts at note-perfect copies (most of them) to imaginative rearrangements (Raymond Benson's solo piano take on Think Of Me With Kindness, for example). Some of the bands are not too well known, but all are talented. Nice tribute but the originals are still better!
