Rural Ledge-ucation #38:Tributes

I'm a sucker for tribute albums...even if the vast majority of them only contain a handful of worthwhile tracks. There's been some great releases of this type in the last few weeks, though, and today we sample a few of them. Fans of Mojo Magazine are probably no strangers to their latest attached disc - a track by track soul recreation of the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers album. Besides a handful of tunes from that wonderful compilation, today's show also includes tunes from two different Minnesota-based tributes. The first one consists of tunes written and recorded by the late, great Vic Chesnutt, and the other is the third in a series of records devoted to remakes of The Beatles. Rounding out the show is a sampler of tracks from a new Smiths tribute, Please Please Please A Tribute to The Smiths, and a recently discovered Alex Chilton compilation originally released in the early 90's.
This is the perfect soundtrack to your football playoff Sunday, and can be found in the iTunes store, Stitcher, or directly download it HERE!
