USA Today now listing Mercy, Mercy the new USA single from Jeff Lynne's Long Wave as Song of the Week:
How would '60s Southern R&B have sounded with Jeff Lynne helming the production? Much like the Traveling Wilburys, if his remake of Don Covay & the Goodtimers' 1964 R&B chart-topper is any indication. The first single from covers album Long Wave, out Oct. 9, has that distinctive Lynne production: the gated snare drum, the raspy stacked vocals. And just wait till you hear what he does with Bobby Darin's Beyond the Sea and Etta James' At Last.
