Like the jukebox on her last covers comp, Cat Power's Chan Marshall is a storehouse of great songs. This EP leads off with a trembling take on "Dark End of the Street," a classic cheating song that epitomizes the simmering Seventies Southern soul Marshall has explored since 2006's The Greatest. She also faithfully covers Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)," while her versions of Creedence's "Fortunate Son" and Sandy Denny's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" are more radical; the latter slows the melody down to a ghostly incantation. But like everything here, it documents the unlikely transformation of an emotive indie rocker into a bona fide soul singer.
