The Covers Record: Cat Power
Personally, I think this is the stronger of her two covers albums. In both she manages to take other people's, often iconic, songs and remould them to fit her smoldering voice. This album seems more wholly hers. It's almost as if she inhabits the songs more fully on this album, where there's nothing at stake. Do not miss her cover of the Stones' "I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)"
do I love all her records? Yes. But this one is..... so special.... just lisent to her interpretation of rolling stones - she's brilliant!
I write this recommendation as if Chan Marshall needs my rec. I'll let you in on a secret, she doesn't. So, take cue and just by every album of hers and you'll feel a lot better about yourself.
