Repressed on vinyl. As the album title indicates, these are covers of other people's songs. Yet she sings them with no less intensity than if they were her own. On 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction' she removes the chorus and returns it as elegant slow blues. The Velvet's 'I Found A Reason' becomes a near-wordless cry. Most appropriately, she covers 'Red Apples' by Smog whom she resembles in approach. Obscure (traditional and early) Dylan, Nina Simone and Michael Hurley tunes complement the bruised but not buried surroundings.
