The Imus Ranch Record

Whatever your feelings about oft-controversial radio personality Don Imus, The Imus Ranch Record suggests that he at least has good taste in music. For this various-artists album, a fundraiser for the ranch he and his wife run for ill children, “The I-Man” chose the artists and matched each with a cover song. The pairings don’t always work, but they’re always intriguing and sometimes revelatory—as when Patty Loveless finds an old-fashioned country weeper inside Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs,” or when Dwight Yoakam simply tears into Doug Sahm’s “Give Back the Key to My Heart.”
