Dream Brother

Genre: Folk; Lead Performer: Various Artists; Producer (group): Ryko

While tributes are rarely worth the spit of those being ”honored,” Dream Brother (inspired by EW music critic David Browne’s book of the same name) is an anomaly: 13 bold and nuanced reimaginings of hard-to-top Jeff and Tim Buckley cuts.
