Fun-loving Anglo/Celtic/American rock band Zebras Don’t Smoke beat back lockdown last year with a hugely-entertaining album of ABBA covers in ‘Don’t Mention The Swedes’.

Now the group returns this time with a very different proposition in this often raucous celebration of the recordings of US-based female singer-songwriters: Nashville’s Anne McCue and Marin County’s Bonnie Raitt.

These are celebrations of the women’s interpretations of others’ composition as much as their own, the band stresses.

Consequently, we also get rollicking takes on the work of Tony Joe White and Paul Brady,

As always with this band, performance and production values are high. In fact, it’s probably their finest hour.

With Lynden Williams on vocals, the Zebras line-up includes Geoff Downes (Yes) on keyboards; Ollie Hannifan (Mister Kanish), guitars; Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train), drums & percussion; Dave Meros (Spock’s Beard) on bass; and Rachael Hawnt (The Beautiful Secret) also on vocals.
