HASH(0xa7ea1840) out of 5 stars DANIEL JOHNSTON and KRAMER, together again, kinda... April 30 2015
By Hassan CHOP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
KRAMER is a genius. The debut release on his SECOND-SHIMMY download-only imprint is a collection of Daniel Johnston's greatest songs, performed by everyone from SUFJAN STEVENS and DANIEL SMITH and Joy Zipper and Dot Allison and Mike Watt and Kramer himself. It's just perfect from beginning to end. I LOVE IT!

Kramer produced Daniel's first-ever "studio" LP when he they made "1990" together in 1998, and it was the LP that made Daniel a household name. It's one of the most beautiful indie label records of the 1980's. the next year they made "ARTISTIC VICE" together in a garage in W. Virginia....so Kramer is uniquely positioned to bring us this collection of Daniel's songs, re-imagined for the 21st century. Many of the tracks were produced by Kramer, and the results are just what you'd expect; BEAUTIFUL.

Daniel shines through, clear as a bell.

Best Track? WORRIED SHOES, by Daniel Smith & Sufjan Stevens. There may not be a better cover version of a Daniel Johnston song out there, anywhere, and there may never BE one that beats it. It's a joy to behold, and if you're a fan of Daniel's, it's a MUST HAVE.

HASH(0xa7fd8c60) out of 5 stars Pretty cool. June 2 2013

I couldn't pass up a disc with Mike Watt but turns out the song he covers has a female vocalist and I didn't really get any feel per se of Mike Watt on the song. Overall, I find this tribute cd to be more palatable than actually listening to Daniel Johnston's actual records. Clearly, he has the ability to write songs with, well, something to them. Not all songwriters are meant to be singers. Notice that apparently Carlos Santana has, as far as I know, not sung on his records (I could very well be mistaken) or Jeff Beck who rarely (if ever) sings on his records. Johnston's is an aquired vocal, one that, either you can enjoy it or, maybe you don't. Fergal Sharkey of the Undertones (in their first incarnation from about 1978 to about 1983), David Thomas with Pere Ubu and Jad Fair of Half Japanese are all vocalists way outside the norm. If any of them were on American Idol my guess is they'd be dismissed summarily. Nonetheless, all 4 of those vocalists have been able to do something in the world of music, playing their tunes they write (or mostly sing in Fergal's case) and singing and let those who wish to enjoy them listen. It's the freedom of democracy and capitalism and a constitution that gives us lots of leeway to express ourselves and no one could stop these guys with those parameters. Only a customer. And we've made our decisions by getting their music or not. I gotta admit I love much of the work of the latter vocalists with their bands, and, oddly, virtually none of their work when they do solo material. There could be Undertones and Pere Ubu tribute cds (and there are) and Half Japanese ones (are there? anyone familiar with any? I'd love to buy one.) I'm a big fan of tribute records, you get to hear songs you love done differently and often it's done well cuz the covering band does the songs lovingly, as with this record. Take care, may God bless you and may we all meet in heaven for eternity cuz hell isn't actually a party hang out, it's just horridness and no fun, no coolness at all. So, let us strive for heaven shall we? Course, if one does not believe in God, heaven or hell, then I guess it's a moot point. Until we die. Then we'll see what's actually the case huh? God bless Mr. Daniel Johnston, got some pretty cool tunes.
