Picked up a couple of tracks off Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero. Lot of remixes on this CD. That isn’t neccessarily a bad thing. I listen to a lot of blues and covers are fairly common, but I still want the individual artist to come through. I want to hear their ‘music’, not just their take on someone else’s.
(This was my problem with Jukebox by Cat Power. I really wanted Cat and felt like the cover album just diluted her.)
And that is my problem here. No matter how much I like his version of ‘Sunday, Bloody Sunday‘ I would still love to hear the real Colin Munroe. His own words, his own music.
If anyone has a rec of Colin singing and playing his own stuff please let me know.
You can listen to and pick up free tracks from the album over on RCRD LBL and can purchase it on Colin’s myspace page. If you are near the Atlanta area, you can see Colin Munroe live tonight Dec 18th at Vinyl and Friday night Dec 19th at Stand Back @ Club Cenci.
