An album worth giving a listen to

Even though it's not available on vinyl just yet (coming June 14), I couldn't wait and picked up Eddie Vedder's new solo album 'Ukelele Songs' the other day on CD.  I was a bit skeptical at first (even though 'Into The Wild' had a lot of 'uke in it) but have been digging it so far.

My fav song so far is "Dream A Little Dream".  Up until now, I usually had heard this song with female vocals (good ole Ella Fitzgerald) but Vedder's scruffy baritone timbre was refreshing. 

Had to chuckle when "Hey Fahkah" came on.  Talk about flash back to living on d'Islands!  Felt like I was back on the construction site.

Good album, you won't regret picking this one up.
