With All the Bells and Whistles

Palms & Runes is the new best-of compilation from Michael Penn now due in stores April 17.

According to Spencer at the Pennlist, "The new versions are significantly different from the originals - Lucky One loses the Ronnie Spector treatment, Bunker Hill and Cupid are entirely reimagined - and one of my favorite songs, Try, sounds similar, but a bit more rocking and raw than the original. The rest of the CD, especially March era recordings, sound better and more vibrant after getting the re-mastering treatment."
Sounds like it might be worth it, even for those of us with every one of his releases. Tracklist:
