Sweet Relief

A Benefit for Victoria Williams

Thirsty Ear
Release year

Pearl Jam, Lou Reed, Shudder to Think and more stand out as we go track-by-track through the album.

Thanks to a recent Facebook poll, this week we're tackling a 1990s benefit album, specifically the 1993 compilation Sweet Relief - A Benefit for Victoria Williams. As with any tribute record, some artists will stay true to the original version, while others will make the songs their own, which can lead to mixed results. Tune in to find out where Pearl Jam, Lou Reed, Shudder to Think and more come out as we go track-by-track through the album.
