They Forgot Elaine Stritch
First, let me start off by saying, "Hahahahahhahahaaaa."
How the hell did this "Cannonball Run 2" of music tribute albums get green-lighted? Yes, even with the participation of many artists I once respected, I cannot approve of King Crimson's violinist covering "Squeeze Box?" Or how about Track 11? What demented A&R guy thought up that concoction? Did he just ask "Who needs $40? What about Sweet? I think the only original member in that band is the caterer.
That said, I'll probably buy this.
