CD Reviews

These tribute songs are awesome!
Andrew Wiggin | 04/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't agree with any rating less than a 5 star!

The Isley Bros took 5 awesome tunes from other bands and made them all so much better! "Too Late" from Carly Simon is dreamily long, and you'll even want it to keep going (over 12 minutes long). Their rendition of "Love The One You're With" by CSN&Y is less country than the original. This one is lively and energetic. "Lay Lady Lay" from Bob Dylan is a beautiful improvement, better voice, better delivered, alive (and over 7 minutes long). "Ohio" by Neil Young is blended with the jagged "Machine Gun" by Jimi Hendrix, and is 12.5 minutes long! I listen to this blazing and passionate one over and over! They even decided to change the direct references to "Nixon" who was "running" for President again at about that time. (hmmm, surely not the first black Republicans???)

Hey, if you don't like longer-live rock, don't buy a live album. If you like live albums because the songs get extended and livened up, this one is awesome!

I'd have given it a 6 star if it had their Seals & Crofts blastin' remake of "Summer Breeze" and their own "That Lady" live and even longer than their long studio version!"
