Looking Through A Glass Onion....John Waters

Australian actor John Waters' interpretation of the life of John Lennon was a huge hit at the box office when originally staged in the early '90s. The show was a narrative combined with the music of Lennon from both The Beatles and his solo recordings. Waters and his band do the music justice and capture the essence of Lennon's songs. John Waters said at the time that he wasn't trying to sound like Lennon, yet his narrative has the Liverpool accent down to a tee, and if you close your eyes you will almost swear it's John Lennon talking. Waters has recently revived the show to rave reviews once more.

We Were Soldiers...various artists

Editorial Reviews
Amazon.com.......The "music from and inspired by" the Mel Gibson Vietnam film is a full slate of new recordings by a wide range of mainstream stars, along with bagpipe and glee-club pieces that convey the movie's sobriety. Quiet, detailed vignettes by Mary Chapin Carpenter (Patty Griffin's "My Dear Old Friend") and India Arie ("Good Man") express the human losses inherent in the conflict, while the pop-country duo Montgomery Gentry offer "Didn't I," the plaint of the returning vet. Much of the rest is inspirational pop of various stripes. Johnny Cash and Dave Matthews team for the ethereal "For You," while Five for Fighting's "The Beautiful" recalls Matthews's most radio-ready tracks. Atmospheric moments from Christian-poppers and up-and-coming Nashville stars complete the package, which is sure to appeal both to fans of the film and those who'll apply the patriotic sentiments to present-day realities. --Bob Roget
