Rachel Fuller Presents: In the Attic with Pete Townshend & Friends
This double CD-DVD is culled from some homey 2007 showcases conceived by singer-songwriter Rachel Fuller, Pete Townshend's longtime partner. It's a mixed bag. Ben Harper and Amos Lee are predictably fine; a singing Jimmy Fallon, not so much. Naturally, Townshend is the main attraction: The Lou Reed duets are scrappy and essential. And when Tenacious D play an awesomely ridiculous Tommy medley for the Who composer, you can hear Jack Black loving his life mighty hard.
