4.0 out of 5 stars Funky and certainly strange, 6 Aug. 2010

This review is from: Strange Brew (Audio CD)
By no means are all the tracks on this album winners, but when they work they really work. The title track cover by Arif Marlin brings extra layers and funkiness to the original Cream track, whilst still maintaining the essence of the song.

Carmen McRae's cover of "I Thought I Knew You Well" is outstanding; enough to move you to tears with a vocal like a purer Amy Winehouse.

The stand out track however is Johnny Harris' Paint It Black. It's dramatic and epic and made me want to explore more of his work.

Like I said before not all tracks are good (Rolling Stones on the sitar anyone?) but all in all an interesting and different album, and definitely one for those with a soulful/funky taste who want to expand their collection.
