Question of the Day: Single Artist Tributes

by

Throughout the day we're giving you the chance to hear the forthcoming album from Bob Dylan, Shadows in the Night. The songs, some familiar, some not-so, have all been recorded by Frank Sinatra. This is an album concept that's worked before - one artist recording the songs of another. Sometimes, like here, it's the repertoire of another artist. More often it's an album based on the songwriting of another artist. Do you have a favorite album like these? (Not various artist tributes). Let us know in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's What we Played:

John Hammond - "Heartattack and Vine," Wicked Grin

The Bottle Rockets - "Mendocino," Songs of Sahm

Dr. John - "When You're Smiling (The Whole World Smiles with You)," Ske-Dat-De-Dat...The Spirit of Satch

The Smithereens - "I Want to Hold Your Hand," Meet the Smithereens!
