Yim Yames – Tribute To

(Rough Trade) UK release date: 3 August 2009

Fleet Foxes lovers and disciples will particularly enjoy James’ versions of The Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll) and a beautifully elegiac All Things Must Pass. Robin Pecknold may have honed the ability to sing as though he were surrounded by rolling green fields and snow-capped mountains, but he would surely doff his hat to his obvious precursor, Jim James.

Cover albums can be forgettable and throwaway, but not this one. This is a truly memorable and worthwhile tribute to the quiet Beatle.
