Does there really need to be another Rolling Stones tribute album? On the strength of Great Lake Swimmers' "Before They make Me Run" and Everest's "Sweet Virginia," there obviously is still an untapped niche out there. This particular compilation is light on hits and heavy on album cuts, and, for the most part, succeeds in reinventing those steel wheels. The biggest pleasures come from the "neglected gems," which are scuffed up and fleshed out with twanging guitars and lamenting harmonicas. Other highlights include "Dear Doctor" (by Lee Harvey Osmond), a sublimely gritty version of "Wild Horses" (by Neal McCarthy) and "You Got the Silver" (by Barbara Kessler).
