John Fogerty just released an album “Wrote a Song For Everyone” comprised solely of past Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo songs. The hook is he’s collaborating with a different artist for each song of that artist’s choosing. i.e. Foo Fighters performing “Fortunate Son” and Dawes performing “Someday Never Comes”
I’m not sure if it means anything nowadays but the album got a rare 5 Star review in Rolling Stone magazine.
Here are a few of my favorite full album collaborations.
David Byrne & St. Vincent “Love This Giant”
Neil Young & Pearl Jam “Mirrorball”
Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton & Linda Ronstadt “Trio”
Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker, Yim Yames “New Multitudes”
Wilco & Billy Bragg “Mermaid Avenue
Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne & Roy Orbison “Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1″
