The Jigsaw Seen :: “Songs Mama Used To Sing”
This is a quartet from LA, that came out with an album in the early ‘90s, generated some buzz and then kind of faded out. This album is all covers, done in various styles. Choice of instruments tends to be pretty diverse and the record on a whole is pretty pleasant. Nice packaging too!

1 Song from the 19th century
Music has a real Velvet Underground & Nico feel, or an old Irish march song feel, something like that.

2 The Who
Electric guitar with feedback, echo effects.

3 Henri Mancini
Jumpy rocker with snare drum beat.

4 Yardbirds
Acoustic and electric guitars with a melancholy, lethargic feel.

5 Bee Gees
Poppy rock song.

6 The Hollies
Catchy, upbeat song. A bit mainstream sound.

7 The Left Banke
Cooing feedback that moves into a stuttery guitar ballad.

8 Arthur Lee
Warbly electric guitar.

9 Scott Walker
Violin or cello and acoustic guitar.

10 The Kinks
Very nice reworking of this classic tune. Sounds like a lute, or something with a cello and twinkling sounds.
