Tributes, Vol. 1 is an 80 minute collection of rare tracks from Henry Kaiser (and his pals) that have surfaced on numerous tribute releases and various artists collections over the years. For you fanatics, you'll also find a handful of unreleased rarities you'd be lucky to find anywhere - including an unissued Sonny Sharrock tribute and an incredible, previously unheard Henry Kaiser Quartet version of the Grateful Dead's "Blues For Allah." This gathering is rich with goodness... including collaborations with Steve Kimock, Greg Goodman and The Maile Serenaders. Along the way, Kaiser tackles a typically disparate variety of covers (Neil Young, The Pinder Family, the Stones). "Dark Star," from Tom Constanten's 1992 Nightfall of Diamonds LP is a standout, as is HK's contribution to Full Moon Fair's 1993 cover of Richard Thompson's "Night Comes In," which you can hear below.
