Picks and Pans Review: Worth a Listen

>BURNING LONDON (THE CLASH TRIBUTE) Various Artists (Epic) A sop to fans fervently wishing for a reunion of the greatest of '70s Brit punk bands: covers of Clash classics by apostles as diverse as No Doubt, Ice Cube, Indigo Girls, Silverchair and Third Eye Blind.

WHO ELSE! Jeff Beck (Epic) Unlike that other '60s guitar god, Eric Clapton, Beck (no relation to his young Yank namesake) can't sing. But he sure can play. Here the old Yardbird showcases his virtuoso talents on 11 instrumental tracks.

A GOOD DAY FOR THE BLUES Ruth Brown (Rounder) She's 71 now, but the 1950s R&B pioneer, whose comeback decades later was capped with a 1997 Grammy nomination, still belts tunes ("Can't Stand a Broke Man") with bawdy gusto.
