My Morning Jacket's James Plots EP of George Harrison Covers

June 24, 2009 5:16 PM ET

My Morning Jacket's Jim James is a busy man lately: In addition to his Monsters of Folk indie supergroup, the MMJ frontman, performing under the mysterious alias Yim Yames, will release an EP of George Harrison covers titled Tribute To on August 4th. Recorded just days after Harrison's death in 2001, the raw collection groups four songs off Harrison's legendary solo album All Things Must Pass with a pair of Harrison's most beloved Beatles songs. James called Harrison's music "a prime example of the healing power of music," a point that Tribute To proves. The EP's track list:

Tribute To:

1. "Long Long Long"
2. "Behind That Locked Door"
3. "Love You To"
4. "My Sweet Lord"
5. "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)"
6. "All Things Must Pass"

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
