Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan, Vol. 12: Sad Eyed Ladies and Wanted Men (Version 2)

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

Note for version 2: Well, that was quick. Apparently, the version of “Baby Blue” I included was officially released, so here’s a different, later one, followed by the same track list as before. Hopefully, this one will fly.

Original notes: OK folks, here’s the latest and greatest from the NSD Laboratories. I count seven new songs that have not appeared in previous volumes, and eight new artists. The rest, of course, are new combinations of ingredients we’ve used before. For those of you who’ve asked: I don’t know how many more volumes there will be–I’ll keep ’em coming til I run out of covers or time.

Here’s a repeat request from last time: can anyone get me a lossless version of Bruce Springsteen’s beautiful rendition of “Forever Young” from the John Hammond memorial show? I’d love to include it in a later volume of this series. And somebody out there (Persic, perhaps?) must have the John Wesley Harding-hosted KCRW special “Oh Merci!” from 1993–share it please!

That’s it for now. Please keep the suggestions and files coming! As always, thanks to the tapers, the original uploaders, the folks who’ve sent me recordings, the fine artists who’ve created cover artwork, and especially the performers and composer. Due to the many different sources, I am not including lineages. I have done nothing to the original files but normalize the levels and fade in and out on each track (using Cool Edit). Enjoy!

Hey, I’m back. We had a great time in Europe, but I am oh so glad to be home. I’ve started uploading shows again, but I’ll likely be a bit slow about it for a bit as we recover from jetlag, and make all the adjustments of being here.

I’ve posted Donna the Buffalo before, so I won’t say much about them, except that if you have never heard them before, give them a try. They really are quite brilliant, and this is a fun show featuring bluegrass stalwart Peter Rowan.
