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.
I'm so pleased about this almost-all-bluegrass edition that I'm not even gonna snark on Jerry Garcia's making the cut (in fact, ALL of my favourite Dead moments are the results of the band's love of bluegrass and country).
(sorry as these are all ROIO, it's hard to find videos of the exact cover version...)

Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume Eighteen link is in the comments
* I'm really hoping that the dearth of comments for the last volume (3 comments, 167 downloads!!) was on account of it being the least intriguing volume in the entire series.
Thanks to Jeffs98119 for compiling these and to obatik for the images.
