Rachel Fuller, Pete Townshend & Friends
Attic Jam (ITunes)
3 stars out of 5
Friday, February 09, 2007
Available only as an iTunes download, this album collates some of the highlights from Fuller and Townshend's online radio show, In The Attic, broadcast from an Airstream trailer, with various guests dropping by to perform acoustic versions of their own or Townshend's songs.
His pulling-power helps secure some sizeable names, particularly US acts keen to collaborate with a genuine rock legend: The Raconteurs, for instance, sound more than usually jovial alongside Pete on a frisky version of "The Seeker", with Jack White's cracked voice struggling to reach the higher notes. Wayne Coyne's hoarse upper register, by contrast, rather suits The Flaming Lips' rendition of "Baba O'Riley". Townshend also chips in solo versions of "Acid Queen" and "A Quick One While He's Away", while, elsewhere, The Magic Numbers' "Long Legs" is one of the more effectively downsized arrangements, their harmonies allowed to glow more brightly here than on the studio version.
