V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume Twenty-Two

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.

Here's a volume that really plays to the kind of of left-field rockers and folkies beloved of MRML including; The Alarm's Dave Sharp, Amy Rigby, Robyn Hitchcock, T-Bone Burnett's Alpha Band Jay Bennett and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco (playing separately) and X's John Doe. A fascinating volume and definitely one of the most interesting ones yet.
