ROB SEZ: Here's a lovely thing: veteran Nashville musicians, getting together to perform classic albums in their entirety, with a variety of vocalists, and donating proceeds to worthy causes. In this case, the classic album was R.E.M.'s Out of Time, and that band's bassist Mike Mills was on hand to sing on several of the selections. Apparently, the Long Players have been doing this since 2004 (!!). Big, sloppy thanks to mbodayle for sharing this one. A complete list of participating musicians is in the file folder.
Check out this one!
