The first Tribute To was great, but that was the At Dawn era Jim.

I haven't liked anything he's done solo since (other than his live performances of MMJ stuff).

I love the guy and I'm sure I'm in the very minority there, but it's just not for me.

Im in the same boat pretty much. Love MMJ but Jim solo hasnít really hit home, although I do dig ĎA New Lifeí. Gonna pick up the new album and Iím hoping to hear a couple gems.

I liked this album, but damn was "I'll be your baby tonight" a miss. The vocals felt like a parody and so I couldn't take it seriously. He's done the Dylan crooning thing well before, this just felt so off.

Also, wasn't there another version of "Lucky Man"? The one used for a commercial I thought sounded much different, though maybe because it was with the band.
Mona Lisa must'a had the highway blues, you can tell by the way she smiles.

Has anyone with the vinyl been able to get the digital download to work yet?  Whenever I try, it just says "This artist has not uploaded media for this card yet. Please check back soon."

Finishing up side 1 now. Damn, I just love Jim's voice.  So far this album is a real treat. To me, it's really amazing the way Jim just follows his muse.

Really love the 2 Al Bowlly & Ray Noble covers-Piano jazz and Jim James are quite the combination!

love the covers.  jim's vocal on 'wild honey' is damn near perfect.  out of this world good.  love his vocal phrasing on willie's 'time slips away' as well.

keep following that muse, jim!  we dig.

I'm just bummed that my copy of Tribute Too 2 has yet to arrive, despite preordering. I've heard mixed reviews but look forward to forming my own opinion... eventually.
Close enough!

hopefully they send you the right one once it eventually does show up. my first shipment had the tribute to reissue in it. :undecided:

Jim tweeted there was a week delay at the pressing plant for the gold (?) variant.

The origin of Jim's Lucky Man cover, from a few years ago...

Close enough!

Got my Tribute To tonight. Too bad I also ordered the Tribute To 2...

Seems like a warehouse pull error but no one at ATO has responded yet

Ditto. After all that wait what a low blow.  I havenít gotten a response yet either but ATO is a good company theyíll make things right.
