3 stars As a musician and composer you are inspired by other acts of course. And you surely will have a preference on diverse songs in the same way, frequently related to special experiences in everyday life most likely. What sooner or later may lead on to the idea, or even obsession maybe, to re-interprete them according to your taste. Be it just for fun, as a contribution to a gig, sampler or vinyl-only single, or whatever. So now here we have a (first = Volume I) collection of rarities, recorded by Cary Grace over the last decade. This in cooperation with diverse musicians she has been, respectively still is recording as well as playing on live performances with her band. First and foremost to name Andy Budge (bass) and drummer David Payne.

Finally that makes a very personal crossover of rock songs from Bowie to Pink Floyd, Cream to Amon Düül 2 and so on. A singer/songwriter who is focussed on psychedelic space rock, I would say this is not a common affair really. This description relates to her albums in general, and 'Covers Volume I' won't be an exception. Although every track bears some recall value, it sounds different in the same way, sometimes more, sometimes less. For instance, you've got it, quite obvious, a female voice is dominating here. By example Bowie's Black Country Rock or Tales Of Brave Ulysses have turned out very well. Every piece is provided with finesse, worked out with care, taken for granted. This is a really nice collection, culminating into the extended album highlight Fat Old Sun, which shows her preferences quite well. 3.5 stars.
