V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Vol. 1


This thirty volume series features artists covering Bob Dylan songs. All of the tracks are recordings of independent origin (ROIO) and hence officially unreleased.

This first volume contains some MRML's all-time faves (Billy Bragg, Elvis Costello), some highly-regarded ones (Neil Young, Soft Boys, Warren Zevon, X, Alejandro Escovedo) as well as some artists that would otherwise never appear here (World Party, Mick Taylor, Phish!). As with many compilations, these are likely best cherry-picked and added to your own mix.




1. Everything is Broken – Neil Young (10-28-89, Shoreline Amp., Mtn View, CA)
2. Dark Eyes – Alejandro Escovedo (10-1-04, Texas Union Hall, Austin, TX)*
3. When the Ship Comes In – Billy Bragg (9-26-05, Talking Bob Dylan Blues The Barbican Theatre, London)*
4. Hard Rain – Big Country w/Eddi Reader (5-31-99, Glasgow SECC, Glasgow, Scotland)*
5. Ring them Bells – Warren Zevon (10-13-96, The Bluebird, Denver, CO)
6. The Groom’s Still Waiting at the Alter – Steve Wynn (7-27-05, Molly Malone’s Irish Pub, Los Angeles)*
7. When I Paint My Masterpiece – Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, and Gillian Welch (10-6-06, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Golden Gate Gate Park, San Francisco, CA)
8. Girl From the North Country – The Eels (5-9-05, Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW – Santa Monica, CA)*
9. Love Minus Zero – Ron Sexsmith (10-24-97, The Milky Way, Amsterdam)*
10. Highway 61 Revisted – World Party (7-12-93, Summer Stage, Central Park, New York)
11. Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again – Soft Boys (October 27, 2002 ,The Mercury Lounge, New York City)
12. Fourth Time Around – Calexico (7-9-03 Zeltival am Tollhaus, Karlsruhe, Germany)*
13. Positively Fourth Street – X (8-2-86, The Ritz, New York City)*
14. Queen Jane Approximately – Mojave 3 (4-17-96, Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW – Santa Monica, CA)*
15. Hurricane – Phish (11/19/85 Memorial Aduitorium, Burlington VT)*
16. Blind Willie McTell – Mick Taylor (9-16-00, Jack Legg’s, Nashville, TN)*

    I really admire the taste of the guy who put these together - it doesn't always jive with my own but it's always interesting.

    It's my ideal reader who appreciates both the Dylan AND the Fastbacks!

    Perhaps Stuart Adamson tribute post needs to be done.

  19. Finally got to the bottom of this set. Started at 7 and worked my way down. Whoever put this together it was a labor of love and he deserves kudos, as does our wonderful host.

    Thanks again.
