Double vinyl LP pressing. 2013 album of cover versions from the singer/songwriter. When promoting Kendra Morris's debut album, Banshee, Wax Poetics Records released promo-only covers of famous songs like Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game.' Before they knew it, two songs touched two very difference audiences and went viral: Metallica's 'Ride the Lightning' and Pink Floyd's 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond. ' Deciding to release the tracks properly on a full album of only covers, Morris and producer Jeremy Page added some soul songs (like the Stax Records classic 'As Long as I've Got You' by the Charmels, and 'Walk on By,; made famous by both Dionne Warwick and Isaac Hayes), many more Classic Rock tunes ('Miss You' by the Rolling Stones, 'Space Oddity' by David Bowie, and 'Walk on the Wild Side' by Lou Reed), and some more current hits ('Karma Police' by Radiohead and 'Black Hole Sun' by Soundgarden).
