V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume Nineteen

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

A folky volume built around Joan Baez's sweet cover of the old Dylan rarity, "Farewell, Angelina". As for the other artist here many are the kind of old school acoustic acts I grew up on, people like Arlo Guthrie, Ramblin' Jack Elliot and Mary Travers.

01 Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues – Gordon Lightfoot (1965, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Burbank, CA)
02 The Times They Are a-Changin’ – Judy Collins (Jan 16, 1965, Sanders Theater Benefit Concert, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA)
03 Things Have Changed – Bob Walkenhorst (May 18, 2005, Molloy’s Irish Pub, Kansas City, MO)
