Inspired by an idea that Minutemen/ fIREHOSE bass player Mike Watt presented to her, singer Petra Haden outrageously re-envisions the classic 1967 concept album, "The Who Sell Out," in a cappella. She multitracks vocal layers to represent every note, riff, solo, bassline and drum beat of the original, including the pirate radio jingles and commercials. Recorded at home on a Tascam-488 8-track, the four-years-in-the-making CD is an amazing document of creative ingenuity and engagement, whimsy and pop beauty. With a keen ear for detail and the perseverance to capture every nuance of the material, Haden puts her stamp on the story song of burgeoning manhood "Tattoo" and hums the liftoff of the hit single "I Can See for Miles." Recommended for its pure entertaining spirit, the CD is also a must-have for Who completists.—DO
