Various Artists Rewind 2
- Words: Tamara Palmer
- Label: Ubiquity
An album of cover songs is only successful if it does more than stimulate nostalgia for the originals. Like its predecessor, Rewind 2 works well up against this standard, providing versions that are satisfying on their own. The song selection ranges from familiar (Terry Callier's take on The Temptation's "Just My Imagination" and Roy Davis Jr.'s lively tribute to Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready") to rare (Fruitbeard's cover of Chrissie Hynde's obscure "Private Life"), so only ardent music collectors will know every song. Familiar or not, there's a heaping handful of stunning moments to enjoy.
