VARIOUS ARTISTS / Sound City: Real To Reel [2013]

Musician Dave Grohl purchased the mixing console from Sound City Studios after it went out of business and made a documentary film about it's history and a musician's love for it.
Sound City: Real To Reel is the companion album to that film that acts like a celebration recording by Grohl & friends.  Including members of Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney, Joshua Homme, Rick Springfield, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor & more, the album is bound to be bouncing all over the map with musical styles. The songs are pretty rough around the edges, given it more a jam session feel, which warmly reveals the love and enthusiasm each player on the album had for it.  It's not a very smooth listen front to back but you can clearly hear they're doing it because they love it and that's what sells it.
