Includes Previously Unreleased Bonus Track Of Bob Dylan's "If Not For You"!
A few days after George Harrison passed away in 2001, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James was moved to record this six-song EP of Harrison covers, paying tribute to a man that he never met, but with whom he felt a special connection. On the EP, James performs beautiful renditions of four cuts from Harrisons classic album All Things Pass as well as two of the Beatles tunes that he penned. These six tracks have a raw, minimalist feel featuring little more than Jamess vocals and acoustic guitar. With all the space, the room in which the tracks were recorded truly serves as another instrument in the mix, creating an ethereal aura for a backdrop.
The 2017 reissue features new cover art and a previously unreleased bonus track - a cover of Bob Dylan's "If Not For You", which was also recorded in the original 2001 session. SPIN described the EP as "spare and somber - just that windy Americana tenor against a squeaky acoustic guitar Many of us remember where we were when Harrison died; now we hear when James began to heal."
"Tribute To finds James tackling six of the late Beatle's songs, including classic staples such as 'My Sweet Lord' and 'All Things Must Pass.' In his extraordinary album-opener, 'Long Long Long,' James' gorgeous, ringing voice seems to stretch out for days. Accompanying himself with an acoustic guitar and some choice vocal harmonies, he sounds reverent in every sense of the word. Given how hard it is to pin James down and how prone he is to flights of fancy it's no surprise that a dose of unmistakable grace serves him well." - Stephen Thompson, NPR
