V/A – Sweet Emotion/Songs of Aerosmith – CD
(Heavy Hip Mama) I’ve gotten a few of this type of compilations where blues greats cover rock songs. However, where the other CD’s had more of a blues sound to begin with (Eric Clapton, Jimmy Hendrix), this release is by far the best. The artist do a wonderful job of making each song their own. I know that a lot of Aerosmith’s tunes are built on a blues foundation, but this CD just emphasizes it to a whole other level. Otis Clay’s’ version of “Cryin’” is just astounding. Gerald McClendon does an excellent job with the tune “Pink”. My favorite has to be Pinetop Perkins, Rusty Zinn and Ronnie Baker Brooks’ version of “Walk This Way”, which is sung in a tradition blues jam style. {Mite}
