Various Artists, Rare On The Air Volume 4

by Sarah Zupko

 

Since 1979, Los Angeles’ National Public Radio station has provided an on-air forum for diverse artists to try out new material and play old hits. The show “Morning Becomes Electric” is stylistically diverse with pop, alternative, jazz, world beat, reggae, and classical all represented. Rare On The Air Volume 4 captures some truly phenomenal performances from this seminal program, including the highlight of the set, an early acoustic take on the now classic “Subterranean Homesick Alien” by Radiohead. The record also features Soul Coughing, Jeff Buckley, Tim and Neil Finn, and Sarah McLachlan.
