Fifty years after its founding in 1962 (the year Bob Dylan released his first album), Amnesty International continues to do lifesaving work for prisoners of conscience and victims of injustice around the world. In 1977, it was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Since the 1970s, Amnesty's Secret Policeman's Ball concerts and records have generated funds for the promotion of human rights and raised awareness of discrimination, state censorship, police brutality, torture, the death penalty, and genocide. AI currently has over three million supporters.

As for Bob Dylan, few artists have been offered accolades to match those laid at his feet. He's among the greatest poets of our age, a transformational figure in the history of music. There's not a singer or songwriter alive who doesn't owe a debt to his wit and wisdom, and thousands cover his clever, compassionate songs every day. They line up to perform on albums like this one, and there's a Dylan tribute disc for just about every genre you can name: pop, rock, blues, reggae, country, folk, classical, jazz. While most of these are heartfelt, many are uninspired or insipid, and few are memorable.

Fortunately, this four-CD, 73-track compilation is both musical and meaningful. The renowned performers on "Chimes of Freedom" possess not only ample talent but also a deep feeling for the political and personal messages that Bob communicates. And they clearly support Amnesty International, whose anniversary they celebrate. None of them accepted any money for their work (nor did producers, arrangers, engineers, or studios), thereby maximizing their assistance to AI. The music and the cause mesh perfectly.

There's no way I wouldn't add this to my collection. Dylan is one of those who has sung the soundtrack to my life, now to rapidly approaching seven decades. I first heard, and then saw him, in the auld country back in the '60's, (took a night off from Georgie Fame at the Flamingo). Leonard Cohen is another who's words and music have sustained and rescued me and he also has a new album full of "Old Ideas" coming out.
Just listening to the first few samples was enough to remove any doubt, which I never had, and grant amnesty to any who may not 'live up to expectations'. As a home visit Hospice nurse one of my guiding principles is to 'leave my expectations at the door', just enter into whatever waits. Deep thanks to all the artists in all fields, and those behind the scenes, who contributed their time, effort and talents to this noble cause.
What I want to know is WILL WE EVER GET A DVD OF THE 30th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT, hopefully before I kick the bucket. I've still got a lot of miles left on me, I ain't knocking on heaven's door yet, but I am going down slow. Sure would like to watch this concert before I hear the Chimes of Ultimate Freedom.

I'm a fan of broken, unmusical voices. Leonard Cohen, Vic Chesnutt, Tom Waits...and Bob Dylan. But as is so often the case, the compositions of these amazing singer/songwriters can sound fresh and vibrant in the vocals of someone more, shall we say, technically accomplished. Such is the case with many of the songs on "Chimes."

Although, having said that, an early favorite is Kris Kristofferson's take on "The Mighty Quinn," which makes superb use of gargles-with-glass throatiness.

The songs on this album span nearly the entire length of Dylan's career so far, even reviving a couple of favorites from his gospel-influenced days. I'm not a fan of what Sinead O'Connor did with the song "Property of Jesus," but I did appreciate someone resurrecting the song. Same with "Gotta Serve Somebody."

Perhaps the best songs are the ones that play directly into Amnesty International's messages of peace and justice. Dylan seems like the perfect poster child for AI, and the international flavor of many of the tracks underscores that message. The other way that the medium emphasizes the message is in the album's dizzying tolerance--not to say embrace--of all styles, from front-porch folk (Pete Seeger on "Forever Young") to harmonious punk (Bad Religion on "It's All Over Now, Baby"), to every point in between. Forget ebony and ivory--if Miley Cyrus can live side-by-side with K'NAAN in my MP3 player, perhaps there's hope we can all learn to get along.

What's all the negative fuss? If you want to hear Bob sing these songs,go buy HIS albums,otherwise avoid this set. It is so refreshing to hear other people interpret these songs. They are,I think, done tastefully, and like any album set like this there will be a couple of songs you wont take to first time around but give it time and these too will grow on you. Also younger generations would do well to listen to this set. I remember I went to a Dylan concert in Sydney Australia and he changed the tempo and the style of his songs. People were getting up and leaving and I couldn't see why. He was showing that he wasn't stuck in the same old rut and I thoroughly enjoyed it. These same people,sadly, have missed the point. As I said before "IF YOU WANT TO HEAR DYLAN SING LIKE DYLAN GO BUY HIS AND ONLY HIS ALBUMS". I really believe you will miss out in the end. The only thing that stays constant in this world is CHANGE." Get out of the new world if you can't lend a hand, for the times they are a changin'" I Would give it more stars if I could, at least 8.
