Synopsis

Amazon.com
One of the more creative, successful tribute albums, A Vision Shared was originally released to coincide with a PBS program that premiered in 1988. Packing some serious heavyweights onto one CD, the record features covers of Guthrie and Leadbelly tunes by, among others, Little Richard, Brian Wilson, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Sweet Honey in the Rock, and U2. The 14 tracks consist of mostly well known tunes, and it's fascinating to hear what the artists have done to them. Particularly exciting is a supercharged version of Leadbelly's "Rock Island Line" by Little Richard with Fishbone and U2's take on Guthrie's "Jesus Christ." --Ian Landau

Good Compiliation

"I enjoy all the cuts on this compilation. It is fun to hear the variety of artists perform their works. A rockin' version of Rock Island line from Little Richard that is worth the whole album. Funny how the Bourgeois Blues still seems relevant........."
U-2 & LITTLE RICHARD ALONE MAKE THIS A BUY!
