V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume 39

Explanatory Note: Since the last NSDLD volume, MediaFire has locked my account. So even though each and everyone of the tracks in this series is a recordings of independent origin (ROIO), people are being denied access to the music. I've made no decision on whether the old volumes should be re-upped.

Compiler Jeffs98119 (check out his excellent blog HERE) has ended his lengthy lay-off to do another volume of Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan as a tribute to the departed Levon Helm. So for this volume, the lone American member of The Band is given not one but four tracks. As well as Levon,you get artist like Lambchop, Glen Hansard, Patti Smith and one of my current faves, Chuck Prophet, though do be warned you also get Bruce Hornsby - but that's just way it is.
