Earlier this year in my review of Walker’s Deafman Glance, I surmised that he could be a professor on music. Since then he’s provided a blow by blow of Leonard Cohen’s Songs of Love and Hate. And now he’s re-interpreting Busted Stuff by Dave Matthews Band. For those not in the know, Busted Stuff was the fork in the road in Matthews’ career. He had originally recorded the album with Steve Lillywhite, only to be rebuffed by the label and forced to record a more radio-friendly version with Glen Ballard. This album isn’t done in jest or to be ironic. Walker appreciates Matthews and just wanted to re-interpret an artist of his youth, at the crossroads of their career.
