Bob Dylan lyrics, left in a drawer, create a breeding ground. Every musician involved composes new music in which the destiny of these words is at last fulfilled. The music is enduring and diverse. The biggest name here is Elvis Costello and he shines on the humorous rocker "Married to My Hack" and on the gospel-flavored "Six Months in Kansas City (Liberty Street)". But the names that are more sub rosa in the music field engage themselves fully in the music. They switch instruments from song to song. Taylor Goldsmith is at home in the folk taletelling of "Florida Key". Jim James, from My Morning Jacket, musically connects the dots no better than on "Quick Like a Flash", which can only be found on the Deluxe Edition. The same can be said for Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) on the countryish "The Whistle is Blowing", also only found the the Deluxe Edition. But the singer who tops them all is Rhiannon Giddens from the Carolina Chocolate Drops and she plays a fine fiddle and banjo too. Imagine that burst of excitement you feel when you first make contact with her singing on the poetic "Spanish Mary" and on "Hidee Hidee Ho #16" with her voice and Joey Bellorose's shoe-box drum sound. And her haunting delivery on "Lost on the River #20", backed by the stone great acoustic guitars of Goldsmith and Mumford, is something of beauty and transcendence. It gets to the root of American folklore.

Unlike Dylan's "Basement Tapes", this doesn't have that album's informal surroundings and it even sounds slick in parts. But I like this music for what it achieves and that's reaccessing that old "Basement Tapes" spirit. They're having a great time making music together. There's no sense of entitlement, just grateful acknowledgement from musicians and producer.

No- it won't "sound" like Dylan, at least not musically. No- it won't "sound" like The Basement Tapes- at least not many of the cuts - though I think some do. Bottom line, and the mark of quality music, is that it won't matter- you would buy this if it was not connected to Dylan or The Band. And Yes- you will be able to know which of the collaborators wrote each tune by their style….very identifiable- who cares. Bottom line- Very High Quality Music. Very enjoyable the first time you listen to it- which is saying something for me! Hell, T Bone Burnett has his finger prints all over it….say n'more. Enjoy.

What changed my perception of this release was seeing the video footage from the sessions. True collaboration; seeing how they wrote, interacted; the difference in approach. My respect for Mumford went from little to sky high; saw Jim James in a low key atmosphere; Costello as the elder statesman. The best part IMO was to see different writers have a go t the same set of lyrics, and hear the results. We hear, what?...maybe 3 or 4 versions of "Lost on the River"? Love the release. And these kind of undertakings can backfire; but Burnett had a very secure handle on it.

I really approached this collection of Dylan lyrics augmented by music written by a cast of contemporary musical luminaries with great trepidation. How would 47 year old lyrics "fit" with the modern styles and musical inclinations of the likes of Marcus Mumford, Elvis Costello et al? The answer is just brilliantly! This is an album anyone-not just Dylan fans-will love. And there are reputedly at least two more volumes to come! Essential

This disc exceeded all expectations!!!! Obviously the lyrics were created by a master song writer, but each artist breathes their own life into the material. As you listen to it you hear traces of Elvis C, Dawes, My morning jacket, Mumford and the Chocolate Drops. However, none of these artists strays too far from the material as the band gels to make some exciting new music without it being just an extension of the bands mentioned above.

This album is fantastic! All of the songs are good and interesting, but so many of the songs and melodies on this album are mind-blowingly good and touch me deeply. I was already a big fan of Marcus Mumford and Elvis Costello, but now I LOVE Rhiannon Giddens, too!! Kansas City, Spanish Mary, and Hidee Hidee Ho #16 are my top favs!! Grand slam!!

We bought the vinyl after watching the Showtime documentary on this album's production (kudos to the marketing team!) because the quality of the artist's work that was presented we knew this was going to sound phenomenal on vinyl. In fact, Marcus Mumford's work alone was enough to get us to order; he works with his open heart and the collection of other artists on this album is pretty amazing, too! With a bit of wait for the vinyl to arrive, the AutoRip was a huge bonus and we have been able to enjoy this until the LP arrives. The craftsmanship of the tracks is beyond beautiful. Do we love every track, no, but we certainly like them all for their own attributes and character; however, the overall body of work presented is masterful in depth of sound and clarity.

Everyone needs to understand that this is not Bob Dylan. This isn't a remake of his lost basement tapes either. This is music that was written from lost music that Dylan wrote and these artists were inspired by. I watched the documentary first and loved the music I heard that I immediately Looked for this album. Watching the musicians work together using Dylan's lyrics meshed with their own was just amazing. I recommend watching the documentary first and then purchasing the album afterwards if you are sceptical.

The music is great. While I don't like all of the songs, it's well worth buying.
