This is the second Cat Power covers album, and it's a great collection of songs from past masters to some new originals.

Cat Power has changed a bit over the years, from bedroom laptop composer to a full band alt country sound, she now seems to have found where her feet best lie; mixed in with big song numbers.

I still prefer the He War era, but this entirely different beast still has it's charms.

01 Theme From 'New York, New York' (Kander/Ebb; popularized by Frank Sinatra/Liza Minnelli)
