The Love EP

After last year’s underappreciated The Sea, the soul-pop siren dives into covers—from Prince to Bob Marley—with splendid results. Best is her tender take on Paul McCartney & Wings’ “My Love.” []

“Well we’re still here, we ain’t going yet,” says Eddie Vedder before launching into Pearl Jam’s ’91 hit “Alive.” Indeed, they boast a fierce vitality on this live album. []

Apollo Kids

The reliable rapper gets help from Wu-Tang cohorts Raekwon, GZA, Method Man, Cappadonna and U-God—plus Busta Rhymes—on this old-school party. []

WANDA JACKSON

The Party Ain’t Over
