iTunes Review

The cliché about being judged by the company one keeps particularly applys to this formidable yet unassuming tribute album. Under-appreciated Canadian singer/songwriter and Memphis expatriate Jesse Winchester’s work has been covered by his peers, from Joan Baez and Jimmy Buffett to Emmylou Harris and, improbably, the Weather Girls. Quiet About It showcases his songbook through another impressive variety of legends and superstars. James Taylor opens the collection with a stripped down acoustic version of “Payday,” which is less honky tonk and more house concert than the original. With a tom-driven rhythm and sorrowful horns, Roseanne Cash’s take on “Biloxi” is transformed into a lovely ‘70s folk dirge, while Allen Toussaint’s exploration of “I Wave Bye Bye” shares an aching loveliness with Winchester’s original studio version. Buffet and Harris make fresh contributions (the latter with Rodney Crowell), and Elvis Costello masterfully takes on the closing, title track.  

Customer Reviews

Can't Compare to the Originals

It's nice to see Jesse acknowledged by these fine artists, but his original versions are so good, that it would be hard for anyone to come close, much less match them. Bless you, Jesse.

Jesse deserves a tribute album!!

Big names on this album. Some good songs. But, if you want to get into Jesse Winchester buy his albums and see him concert while you can. He's one of the best songwriters for the past 35 years!!

I agree with the above reviews - get the originals

especially Mississippi You’re On My Mind
RIP Jesse Winchester
You will be remembered
