Little Richard: The Power Of The Heart - A Tribute To Lou Reed (CD)

(Light In The Attic Records) 12 tracks, digipack

“The Power of the Heart” is a tribute to Reed's freedom of expression with cover songs spanning his groundbreaking years with the Velvets through to his majestic solo career. Each track is a glorious extension of the soul of the rock'n'roll animal, always adventurous and avant-garde. The Power of the Heart: A Tribute to Lou Reed begins with a legend in his own right, Keith Richards reinterpreting the Velvets classic “I'm Waiting for the Man” Richards' interpretation immediately invites you on this unforgettable journey. In stark contrast, Rufus Wainwright's arrangement of “Perfect Day” is somehow even more melancholy than the original, with sparse fingerpicking and gentle harmonies. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts deliver a version of “I'm So Free” that would have even Lou rocking in his grave.
It's exciting to hear these songs reinterpreted and sung by such heavyweights; you can even hear Lucinda Williams channeling the spirit of Lou with her version of “Legendary Hearts” Other notable tracks include real-life lovers Angel Olsen & Maxim Ludwig's punky, amorous duet of “I Can't Stand It” and Rickie Lee Jones' reinterpretation of “Walk on the Wild Side,” which is seductive with its whispery vocals, stripped-down percussion and a piano fit for a late-night lounge. This tribute album defies categorization into a specific genre, but ultimately it's the centerpiece: a deeply thoughtful collection of songs that shaped an entire generation, and each one is a tribute to a man whose work still sings.
“For me, Lou stood out. The real deal! Something important to American music and to all music! I miss him and his dog” - Keith Richards

“Lou seemed fearless to me, like he'd rather die than please people. I was inspired by that.” - Rosanne Cash

“Lou Reed is my earliest influence, my introduction to punk rock. This song was a great opportunity to work creatively with Maxim.” - Angel Olsen

“Lou Reed has been dead for many years now. He's one of the few people I miss as much now as I did when he left. There are so many moments when I wonder what he would say or think. His general aura always gave the room something very special. Thank God he left behind his great music and recordings. His personality is sorely missed. I love you Lou.” - Rufus Wainwright

It goes without saying that the legendary Lou Reed was a true rock'n'roll pioneer. From the debut of The Velvet Underground in 1967 until the end of his days, Reed sang the truth from his heart. He lived life to the extreme - and then some.
