Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rather than compiling a mix tape for the road, Pete and Maura Kennedy went one better. For the husband-and-wife duo's first covers album, they put their signature stamp on 14 of their favorite songs for the van. Since the Byrds have always provided a touchstone for the Kennedys' blend of hooks, harmonies, and guitar jangle, it's no surprise that their transcendent version of "Eight Miles High" highlights this collection, along with dips into the songbooks of Byrds alumni Gene Clark ("Gypsy Rider") and the Flying Burrito Brothers ("Sin City"). In addition to the folk-rock of the '60s, the Kennedys show a penchant for '70s troubadours such as John Stewart ("Jasmine") and Bob Neuwirth ("Eye on the Road"). Yet the album's wild-card eclecticism also includes a transformation of Stephen Stills's "Pretty Girl Why" into a Brazilian samba, while material that ranges from Nick Lowe's "Raging Eyes" to Jimmy Webb's "Galveston" to Mahalia Jackson's "I'm on My Way" shows that musical inspiration knows no categorical bounds. The album ends as it must, with a Nanci Griffith song ("Late Night Grande Hotel"), for it was in Griffith's band where vocalist Maura and guitar virtuoso Pete came together and decided to go out on their own. --Don McLeese

Product Description

This latest by the popular folk duo is all covers and includes some of their most requested songs. Featured are exciting reinventions of classics by the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Bob Dylan, Nick Lowe, Jimmy W ebb, Stephen Stills, Nancy Griffith and other great performers. The last CD by the Kennedys (who also host their own Sirius radio show) was the # 5 most played CD on WFUV-NYC and got a lot of airplay. This CD is even more airplay friendly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it. May 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard the tail end of a PBS special of the Kennedys. I wasn't even watching the program and honestly had never heard their music before. The program was on in the other room while I was on the computer and I stopped what I was doing to listen to them. I came on to amazon to see what was offered by them and picked this cd. I have to say, I just LOVE it. There is one, maybe two songs that I don't care for but I have been listening to it constantly in the car since I got it. Track 5, 9, and 11 are my favorites. It is getting a bit irritating though because the songs are in my head even when I am sleeping. I wake up hearing them. LOL. I encourage anyone to buy this Cd.
