William Shatner
Has Been
(Shout Factory/Sony)
Put away any thoughts that this is another kitschy “Lucy in the Sky” laugh-off. William Shatner, ever the overly dramatic thespian, delivers a funny, thoughtful and at times heartbreaking performance here. He manages to hold his own with Henry Rollins and Joe Jackson, and not trip over Pulp’s brilliant “Common People.” The real star here is Ben Folds, who co-wrote and produced, and no doubt prevented the session from spinning out of control. Sometimes an old dog can learn a new trick.
