V.A. Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan Volume 40

Reminder Note: Since NSDLD volume 38, 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 another lay-off to do another volume of Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan. This volume is centered around material from the Dylanfest in New York retailer in 2012. That set list includes some current buzz figures like Regina Spektor, some old vets like Donald Fagan and even punk survivor, Jesse Malin showed up.

As always, what you value and I value here may differ but  hopefully most of us can agree that Richie Havens version of "License to Kill" is powerful as hell.

02 Where Are You Tonight - Antony Ellis (Five O'Clock Heroes)
03 Sara - Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith (Dawes)
