The title is somewhat misleading, as this album contains solid versions of "Auld Lang Syne," the blatantly French "La Marseillaise" and "Listen to the Mockingbird," as well as excerpts of speeches by Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. It's kind of like a hip-hop concept album for a 75-year-old white man.
