On Power Player, Marcus Singletary places a unique spin on reimagined, yet familiar, tunes from the 1960s. The project was inspired by Robert Plant's EP of songs associated with the 1950s, The Honeydrippers: Volume One. He starts off with an exciting interpretation of The Rivieras' "California Sun," adding sexuality and some amazing guitar licks to what was once an innocent, two-minute pop song. "Love in Vain" merges Robert Johnson's sorrowful narrative with twangy uplift and a swagger that Jagger missed. Both "Sun" and "Vain" are performed by Singletary on acoustic guitar, with leads influenced by Keith Richards' use of the instrument on "Sympathy for the Devil." For "Shapes of Things," he switches to electric, and uncovers some jazz-fusion elements that the Yardbirds and Jeff Beck Group versions only hinted at. Finally, an explosive version of Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild" kicks ass from start to finish. Power Player gives listeners insight into how classic rock radio - an FM format that barely even exists today - provided Singletary the perfect specimens for his ongoing lab experiments.
