As someone who once compiled a bootleg collection of Billy Bragg doing Bob Dylan covers (see HERE) I was excited to see this collection British folkies, ancient and modern, covering Dylan's second album, The Freewheelin Bob Dylan, in its entirety. As this programme arrived amidst the ONSLAUGHT that accompanied Mr. Dylan's 70th birthday, I filed it in the bulging "Blog Ideas' folder. Then as my Billy Bragg series (see much, much more HERE) grew more obsessive, I thought this was the time to present it to those MRML readers who like music where you can hear fingers striking guitar strings and where singers 'lean forward just a bit'.
