Coming from Concord Music on 8/14 is this somewhat random collection of Fleetwood Mac covers on a "tribute" to the legendary band. Every time one of these compilations gets released, I think of two things- "The Cannonball Run" movies and the meeting in the label conference room when those in charge decided to sign off on what usually turns out to be a half-assed collection of artists with no possibility of appealing to anyone who is a fan of anyone involved.
Are ZZ Top fans really going to get excited over Lykke Li and Best Coast? Do Marianne Faithful fans listen to Stevie Nicks? Are MGMT fans buying tickets to Antony & The Johnsons?
Listen to it all at the link below.
The New Pornographers tracks does kick ass, though.
