Petra Haden does The Who Sell Out
Whose idea was this? How did it come to be? Why does it work? Well, you can thank Mike Watt, who gave Petra an 8-track cassette with the original album on one of the tracks, and left the other seven empty for Petra to not only cover the album herself, but do it a cappella. So Haden does actually sing the entire album by herself, with herself, and of herself. And yes, she even covers the little jingles in between the songs. It's great, if you love the original, it's an appropriate tribute to the mods and their Armenia city in the sky. Best harmonies are on "I Can See For Miles". - TK
