‘Songs For Slim: Rockin’ Here Tonight’ Various

“Songs for Slim” is a benefit compilation for Bob “Slim” Dunlap, lead guitarist of the Replacements in the post-Bob Stinson years. In February 2012, he suffered a stroke and is partly paralyzed. Starting in January, a monthly series of benefit singles of covers of his songs (mainly from his two solo albums) were sold by auction to raise money for the full-time care he needs, and this set compiles 18 of those cuts plus a bonus CD of 10 additional tracks.

It features an A-list of Dunlap’s peers, including the Replacements themselves, former Replacement Chris Mars, Tommy Keene, Soul Asylum, and X’s John Doe. It also includes alt-country greats such as Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams (one of the few women on the set), Drive By Truckers’ Patterson Hood, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Lucero.

‘ “Inside Llewyn Davis”: Original Soundtrack Recording’ Various

Should he want it, a career in folk singing awaits Oscar Isaac, the actor who brings soulful depth to the sad-sack jerk title character of “Inside Llewyn Davis,” the Coen brothers’ riff on the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960s.

As in the movie, Isaac more than holds his own with professional singing types like Justin Timberlake, who plays a blandly likable folkie, and Broadway actor Stark Sands.

Isaac brings conviction to trad tunes performed solo or accompanied by Marcus Mumford or the Punch Brothers. When he’s not on the mike, the soundtrack is a mishmash.
