Maria McKee Covers "Barstool Blues"
Maria McKee's latest CD Dreams has a nice cover of Neil Young's "Barstool Blues" from his Zuma album.
From a review in The Washington Post By Allison Stewart:
"The minimal accompaniment -- mostly piano, backup vocals and the occasional electric guitar -- serves her well, and 'Peddlin' Dreams' at least feels the way it should: raw, and close-up. '(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am' is an AM pop gem, so different from the rest of the tracks here it might have wandered in from a Lesley Gore album. A cover of Neil Young's 'Barstool Blues' is practically perfect, if only because the song was mostly perfect to begin with, and McKee and husband-producer Jim Akin are smart enough to serve it straight up."
