VARIOUS ARTISTS Bob Dylan’s Jukebox (2006)

Bob Dylan’s Jukebox (2006)
Even What He Likes Is Marketable

In a perfect world, Bob Dylan’s star power wouldn’t be needed to sell this collection to the public. But… the Dylan connection is tangible, and this works, if only as a roadmap for Bob’s own songwriting inspirations. It’s a diverse “originals” collection, too, made up of songs that Dylan has covered, in one way or another, throughout his career. Some of these 25 recordings are scratchy and challenged, which is probably to be expected. And, probably how Bob likes ‘em, anyway. But, I still can’t shake the feeling that Dylan doesn’t even know this collection – with his name on it – even exists. Amazon.

    I enjoyed the "Theme Time Radio Hour" show, which was another good showcase for his always eclectic musical tastes.
    Thanks for this collection!

    Nice to see Buell Kazee on there, but no Willie McTell?
