Under the moniker Cat Power, US musician Chan Marshall has perfected the art of cover songs over the past three decades. Three of her eleven studio albums since 1995 are cover albums, where songs by the Rolling Stones or Lana Del Rey sound as if they were originally by Cat Power. With a melancholic, smoky voice, subtle instrumentation, and a minimalist groove, she captures the essence of the songs. The FAZ referred to this as "reverse pop," describing it as the "re-transformation of mass-produced music into something intimate and idiosyncratic." Cat Power has now covered one of the most legendary concerts in pop history: Bob Dylan's 1966 performance at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, which became famous as a live recording mistakenly labeled "Royal Albert Hall". You could also hear the protests of the audience when Dylan picked up the electric guitar in the second part of the concert, breaking with the purist folk tradition to transition to rock music. Cat Power reinterpreted this concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2022 and released it as a live album. It is both a tribute to Bob Dylan and a clever reinterpretation of a pop artist who now is reviving Dylan's legendary concert at the Grand Hall of the Elbphilharmonie as part of the Kampnagel International Summer Festival.
