Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan “Come Undone”
from Hawk (Vanguard www.vanguardrecords.com 2010) N  —Written by Isobel Campbell & found on their new release. For me, this album has it all...two vocals that sound great together, really strong songs, two Townes Van Zandt covers, a K-Yule song candidate, a sax freakout & Mark Lanegan with gospel singers.


Jerry Lee Lewis & Solomon Burke “Railroad to Heaven”
from Mean Old Man (Verve Forecast 2010) N  —Gospel tune featuring Jerry Lee Lewis and Solomon Burke on call and response vocals. Found on this new release which just came out this week. At 75 years of age, Jerry Lee Lewis can still turn it out.

John Grant “Two of Us”
from Let It Be Revisited (Mojo 2010) N  —Taken from this collection of various artists reinterpreting songs from the Beatles' "Let It Be" album. Most of it fails miserably but I think this is a nice vocal from somebody I know nothing about. This CD accompanied the Oct. issue of Mojo magazine.
