This multi-volume series features artists covering Bob Dylan songs. All of the tracks are recordings of independent origin (ROIO) and hence officially unreleased.
Compiler Jeffs98119 (check out his excellent blog HERE) is back, following a not-so-brief technological tangle, with another varied entry in this hopefully-endless series. As with many of the volumes, the series spans notable artist from all over the genre map from the last forty years. On this set we go from Martin Simpson to Arlo Guthrie to The Seldom Scene to Jackson Browne to Heart to Elvis Costello to Robyn Hitchcock to The Pretenders to The Waterboys to Uncle Tupelo to Jeff Buckley and The North Mississippi All-Stars. I can't claim to love every artist on that list but its breadth is compelling.
