Hidden Beach Recordings is the first label--independent or otherwise--to commemorate the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States with YES WE CAN: VOICES OF A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT. The album was produced by Steve McKeever of Hidden Beach, and in his liner notes, McKeever documents the birth of the project, but that hardly matters in a sense, because the music is what does. Assembled here are 18 cuts, some of them presented in their original form, some with bits from the speeches of Obama and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Those using Obama speech audio include: John Legend ("Pride, In the Name of Love"), Lionel Richie ("Eternity"), and artists as diverse as Ozomatli, Jill Scott, Dave Stewart, Shontelle, Los Lonely Boys, Suai, Keb' Mo', and Buddy Miller (whose closing number "Wide River to Cross" is among the real highlights). While it's far more memorable as a piece of memorabilia or nostalgia than as a musical artifact, it's quite a handsome package, with photographs of everything from the Democratic National Convention to the New Hampshire Primary, and the many snippets from Obama speeches on the campaign trail included.
