Originality improves these thirty-three tracks on this double-album, with seventeen bonus digital tracks, from Jealous Butcher Records. As with many tribute projects, this is for charity, a music-education based organization First Octave. And, as with the better tributes, this gathers recognizable names with lesser-known talents from the Pacific Northwest to rethink the melodies, tweak the vocals, and play with the arrangements of some of the most familiar of classic rock staples.

Familiarity proves a challenge, for straight delivery of "Kashmir," "Rock and Roll," "Whole Lotta Love," and of course "Stairway to Heaven" would entice few to listen to this compilation. Many tribute albums fall rather than rise by including straightforward cover versions of songs that need no imitation. The work that has gone into the preparation of this project attests to the will not to repeat this trend, which on many 1990s-era compilations by indie bands redoing their influences tended to bring down the more daring interpretations by too many songs that tried to slavishly repeat the originals, to no purpose.

Luckily, Pellet Gun makes "Rock and Roll" into a Big Black-Henry Rollins barking-mad, grimly industrial, perkily martial call to arms. This kind of invention occurs on the best contributions. Even a song for me that is weaker in its original form, such as "In the Evening," improves by Chris Walla's hooks that stretch it out into meditation.

The first disc as sequenced highlights eclecticism. Bluesy female vocals start off with "Good Times, Bad Times" by Kind of Like Spitting, followed by The Clampitt Family's downhome "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You." Then, the Portland Cello Project takes on "Dazed and Confused.
