Album Review

This album is a collection of covers from classic R&B, Soul and country artists. Benyaro focuses on acoustic guitar, harmonized vocals and the occasional harmonica solo. Their voices work so well together, and that’s definitely their strength here. All great songs with new, invigorated sound. Standout tracks: 1, 2

1. Bring It On Home to Me** – Sam Cooke cover, big, jangling acoustic guitar, harmonica and crooning, soul vocals
2. Why Does My Hear Feel So Bad?* – Moby cover, pensive strings, exposed acoustic guitar, builds with added guitar, shakers, falsetto
3. Clay Pigeons – Blaze Foley cover, classic country with nicely harmonized vocals, pretty guitar interludes
4. Don’t Lose Your Good Things – Etta James cover, doesn’t translate as well to all acoustic arrangement but vocals still strong
5. What About Us – Coasters cover, more up temo, harmonica, bigger sound
6. A Whiter Shade of Pale – Procol Harum cover, added piano and strings with backup harmony builds up sound more, strong lead vocal floats over
