Guide Review - Dylan Country - Various Artists
Of course, many folks think almost everyone sings Dylan better than Dylan himself, so for those who love Dylan's work but not his voice, this is a real treat. For those of us who don't care who sings it as long as we're hearing Dylan's words, well, it's just as much of a feast for the senses. And there is a bit of Bob himself on the disc, playing guitar to accompany Earl Scruggs on "Nashville Skyline Rag," and joining Willie Nelson for a duet on "Heartland."
None of the tunes here were big hits for either Dylan or the cover artist (with the exception of "Subterranean Homesick Blues," here amazingly revisited by Tim O'Brien), but there are so few Dylan tracks which aren't amazing that doesn't seem to matter. Whether it's the Country Gentlemen or Hank Williams Jr., it's all icing.
