Endless Highway - The Music of the Band (2007) Retail CD
Alternative Pop/ Rock
Alternative Singer/ Songwriter
Adult Alternative Pop/ Rock
As a rule, tribute records are problematic; there are some tunes that shine, others that are interpreted as if the performer has no idea what the original artist was about. Amazingly, that's not so on Endless Highway: The Music of The Band, despite a wider ranging roster than is usually proffered. This is also a celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Martin Scorsese's brilliant film The Last Waltz commemorating the Band's farewell concerts in San Francisco. The array here is simply dazzling. Recordings artists from across the popular music spectrum participate: there are the jam bands like themore… Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic and Blues Traveler; there are indie rockers like Guster, My Morning Jacket, and Death Cab for Cutie; big modern country names like Josh Turner and Lee Ann Womack; modern adult alternative popsters like Rosanne Cash, Bruce Hornsby and Jack Johnson; unclassifiable rockers like Gomez; and modern-day folkies like Jackie Greene and Steve Reynolds, with the Roches on the set, too. And while Bob Dylan isn't here, Jakob is, in duet with Liz Wright on a gorgeous reading of "Whispering Pines." But then, this whole thing works. Guster's reverent and moving read of "This Wheel's on Fire," opens the set; it's a beautiful place to start because it's followed in true Band fashion by Hornsby's swinging, funky rendition of "King Harvest," only to be underscored by My Morning Jacket's "It Makes No Difference." It's true that nobody could sing this song like Rick Danko, but it's played with such understated passion and tension that it's as necessary a cover as there ever has been. While everybody refers to the Staple Singers cover of "The Weight," Lee Ann Womack brings the song back to its country roots with a vengeance It's still a back porch gospel tune, but Womack underscores the rural grit in the tune....
