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


Hey, come check out my Top Ten of 2011 (so far..) over at THE BIG TAKEOVER!
Don't forget to leave a comment there!

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

Another inimitable grab-bag featuring those sturdy roots-rock artists you might expect (Los Lobos, The Jayhawks, John Doe et al) and a few surprises like The Ramones...



and The Roots [!]...

    Not that C.J. did a bad job or anything but I sure wish "My Back Pages" had featured Joey on lead vocals.
