V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume Eight

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

No special theme this time just lots of the usual great stuff like Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, John Wesley Harding and the White Stripes (plus a dose of dull jam-rockers like Trey Anastasio, Dave Mathews and The Grateful Dead.)



01 Wicked Messenger – Patti Smith (7-15-00, Folk & Roots Festival, Chicago IL)
02 Rainy Day Women – Trey Anastasio (2-22-01, Landmark Theate, Syracuse, NY)
03 Walk Out in the Rain – Eric Clapton (4-24-04, Odyssey Arena, Belfast, Ireland)
04 Chimes of Freedom – Bruce Springsteen (9-1-78, Masonic Temple Auditorium, Detroit, MI)
05 Mr. Tambourine Man – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers with Roger McGuinn (2-1-97, Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA)
06 The Mighty Quinn – The Grateful Dead (4-19-86, Community Theatre, Berkeley, CA)
07 Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues – John Wesley Harding (6-3-91, The Roxy, Los Angeles, CA)
08 Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat – Jimmy LaFave (7-16-94, Alligator Lounge, Santa Monica, CA)
09 It Takes a Lot to Laugh – Steve Earle (6-26-96, Cold Creek Correctional Facility, Henning, TN)

14 One More Cup of Coffee – White Stripes (9-30-05, Masonic Temple Auditorium, Detroit, MI)

  3. Is there a way to import these songs into iTunes such that the album, song title, and artist load into the appropriate fields? Hate to enter everything manually.

  7. Fabulouness once again.
    Thanks so much for doing this.

    One More Cup of Coffee by White Stripes is a favorite cover- gorgeous.

    Thanks again. I hope if I ever get my Dylan-ish blog off the ground I can share too.
    Of course all my Dylan boots and covers have been from you and Expecting Rain.

    Gratitude abounds

    I'll take the Dead's free jazz lite noodling over the dull as dishwater songs of 95% of mid-ninties Fat Punk bands any day of the week. Then again the Dylan album that's been getting the most plays by me as of late is "Street Legal" and even my pastor won't forgive me for that.

    I'm planing a post-length rebuttal, which may or may not materialize.
    I totally love Street Legal, it's one of Dylan's most under-rated works.

  10. A fresh interpretation is sometimes all it takes to hear a song like it's the first time all over again.

    Thanks for posting this series.
