Derek Webb – Democracy Vol 1 #7

26th Jul 10 (Mon) Leave a comment Go to comments

One a month in 2010…

Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 1 is rolling along… This month, it’s “Power of Love” by Huey Lewis & the News. It’s a bit loudly mixed and an odd choice of instrumentation, but much less camp and dated than the original; so Derek gets “kudos” from me on that front. :)

For those not in the know, Democracy Vol 1 was part of the Stockholm Syndrome pre-order package, but you can still join in over at the DW store and get the following (plus future releases):

  • January: The Beatles – While My Guitar Gently Weeps
  • February: Coldplay – Fix You
  • March: Bob Dylan – The Times They Are A-Changin’
  • April: Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul
  • May: Sufjan Stevens – Chicago
  • June: U2 – Where the Streets Have No Name
  • July: Huey Lewis & the News – Power of Love

~Dan – np: Isis – Panopticon

Democracy Vol. 1 is the first in a series of subscription based albums of cover songs that Derek will be recording annually, starting January 2010. Those who participate will not only receive the exclusive album, but will democratically decide what songs Derek will record.

Ever wished you could hear Derek cover your favorite Beatles song? Or Backstreet Boys song? Or even re-record your favorite old Caedmon’s Call song? Here’s your chance. Songs will be nominated and voted down to 12. Derek will record them (demo quality) and deliver them digitally (320kbps MP3s), one song per month for 12 months. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unique collaborative project with Derek Webb!

    I have really liked all of the recordings for Democracy Vol 1, UP TILL The Power of Love. HIDEOUS rendition. I don’t know what Derek was thinking?? Give me Huey Lewis’s ‘camp’ version anyday.
