||You're Only as Pretty as You Feel CD (2005) |
Caroleen Beatty music CDs You're Only as Pretty as You Feel, by Caroleen Beatty (with Mushroom and Heavy Friends), is something of a sequel to Mushroom's collaboration with Gary Floyd, Mad Dogs and San Franciscans. Both albums feature great songs from the '60s and '70s, but not performed as a retro-homage or with tongue in cheek. Instead, one gets the sense that these are tunes that the musicians really enjoy, and really enjoy playing. The songs may look on paper like they wouldn't necessarily hang together (Bill Withers, Pentangle, Jefferson Airplane, Brian Auger and Julie Driscoll, and Ginger Baker's Air Force), but the band pulls it off like the glory years of free-form FM radio, where just about anything could happen. Beatty has a strong and sultry voice that's versatile enough to handle all this material with equal aplomb and Mushroom have proven time and time again that they can do damn near anything musically and make it seem easy. And who else would have the guts to cover "Toady" and play it straight? The only problem with You're Only as Pretty as You Feel is its relatively brief running time. Let's hope it's ...

||Brian Eno's Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy CD (2004) |
Caroleen Beatty music CDs This is a 30th anniversary remake of Brian Eno's 1974 classic.
"I like it very, very much," insist Brian Eno's liner notes, but one cannot help but wonder whether acolytes of Eno himself will share his enthusiasm, all the more so since this 30th anniversary remake was issued almost simultaneously with remastered versions of Eno's own original version.
Nothing less than a track-by-track recasting of Eno's landmark second album, Brian Eno's Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy is part-tribute, part-oneupmanship, as Caroleen Beatty and Doug Hilsinger utterly eschew the original album's ...
||Frothing Green CD |
Caroleen Beatty discography All songs by Bedlam Rovers except "Angel From Montgomery" (John Prine) and "Home Be Bearna," "Parting Glass" and "Three Drunken Maidens" (traditional).
If Camper Van Beethoven had traded in a bit of their goofball multiculturalism in exchange for a share of X-Tal's pissed-off leftist fervor, the results might have sounded a bit like what the Bedlam Rovers conjured up on their debut album, Frothing Green. While the Bedlam Rovers lack a bit of the easy grace of CVB's early period, their fiddle-fueled (and mostly acoustic) folk-rock also carries a ...
