V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume Ten


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

Y'know the quality ratio on this series (considering the limitations that ROIO implies) in damn high. With Johnny Cash, Warren Zevon, Billy Bragg, John Doe, Robyn Hitchcock, Tom Russel, Neil Young and Dan Bern here, who am I to complain about having 1 1/2 dull covers by the Grateful Dead?



01 When I Paint My Masterpiece – Grateful Dead (Jul 9, 1995, Soldier Field, Chicago, IL)
02 All Along the Watchtower – Warren Zevon (Jan 16, 1996, Rack-n-Roll, Colorado Springs, CO)
03 Blind Willie McTell – Rick Danko (Nov 19, 1992, Stephens Talkhouse, Miami, FL)
04 Hard Rain – Daniel Lanois (Sep 22, 1995, Ballard Backstage, Seattle, WA)
05 This Wheel’s On Fire – Billy Bragg and KT Tunstall (9-26-05, Barbican Theatre, London)
06 Girl From the North Country – Johnny Cash and Joni Mithcell (Oct 7, 1970, Johnny Cash TV Show, Nashville, TN)
07 She Belongs to Me – John Doe (Feb 2, 2005, Narrows Center for the Arts, Fall River, MA)
08 Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues – Tom Russell (Apr 2, 2002, Columbus Music Hall, Columbus, OH)
09 Ballad of a Thin Man – Elliott Smith (Oct 11, 1998, 400 Club, Minneapolis, MN)
10 Like a Rolling Stone – World Party (Jul 23, 1993, Wadsworth Theatre, LA, CA)
11 Visions of Johanna – Dan Bern (Mar 14, 2004, Joe’s Pub, New York, NY)
12 Trying to Get to Heaven – Robyn Hitchcock (Nov. 25, 2003, Largo, Los Angeles, CA)
13 I Shall Be Released – Neil Young with Phish, REM, and Sara McLachlan (Oct 17, 1998, Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA)
14 Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door – Ratdog (Aug 9, 1995, Hampton Beach Casino, Hampton Beach, NH)
