In a world with too many VU covers albums that sound pretty boring, this sounds like I'm going to have to go for, based on lineup alone.

Looking closer they're almost all Lou solo songs (including a couple that he first recorded with the VU), but it still looks like fun.

LITA just released Keef doing IWFTM from the forthcoming release. It's nice to see, but not sure I need to listen to it more than once.

Keef has certainly earned the right to sing those lyrics

I was unsure at the beginning, but by the end it really got me. I also don't know how often I'll spin it, but it's 100% clear that Keith knows his shit.
