Lorrie Matheson & the Brass Tacks/The Maykings - Tolerance. A Tribute to Grant Hart. (2005)

This single is an excellent idea, though maybe a niche one. Get two bands, one from Edmonton and the other from Calgary, to each record a Grant Hart track. The Maykings' take on "Keep Hanging On" is pretty decent, rootsy take that's far less frantic than the original version on Flip Your Wig. But it's Lorrie Matheson's that keeps us coming back - largely for Brooker Buckingham's excellent guitar work on the last half of the track.

Get it here.
