Bobby D Covered (Again)

You'll find that we here at TNOP are obsessed with most anything Dylan, and covers of his songs are high on the list. So it was with great pleasure that we discovered that jazz man extraordinaire Dr. Ben Sidran announced on his website that Dylan Different will be released by Bonsai Music via iTunes and CD Baby on November 16. Even better, we've got a taste of his take on Highway 61 Revisited on video. Cool as expected from the sometime UW-Madison music professor and past collaborator with Boz Scaggs, Mose Allison, Steve Miller and Van Morrison.

Track listing:
Everything Is Broken
Highway 61 Revisited
Tangled Up In Blue
Gotta Serve Somebody
Rainy Day Women #12 & 35
Ballad of a Thin Man
Maggie's Farm
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
Subterranean Homesick Blues
On The Road Again
All I Really Want To Do
Blowin' in the Wind

[Now if it was only easier to buy Sidran's old classic The Doctor Is In. The grooves on my LP are just about worn out. Suffice to say on that album his band includes Larry Carlton, Richard Davis, Phil Upchurch, Blue Mitchell and John Guerin. It's a safe bet this title will come up on the ALBUMS YOU MUST OWN list in the near future.]
