Due for release next week this has to be one of the strangest collaborations since Alison Krauss teamed up with Robert Plant in what turned out to be a really great project with 'Raising Sand'.
My figurative hat is tipped to them because they have actually made a really classy record together that is a track for track remake of The Everly Brothers' 1958 Classic 'Songs Our Daddy Taught Us'.
Two Tracks have been posted on You Tube that deserve a listen or two. Firstly 'Long Time Gone'. And the second is a music video for 'Silver Haired Daddy of Mine'.
This one turned up just a little too late to be included in the best albums of the year but I have a feeling that it's going to be an album that's really well received because it is actually really impressive. The harmonies of Armstrong and Jones are just way beyond beautiful and it's actually pleasant to hear Billie Joe actually singing!
