Editorial Reviews

A stunning tribute to music legend Bob Dylan in honor
of his 70th birthday, featuring knockout performances
by the cream of the Red House Records artists roster.
This CD is the 10th anniversary sequel to Red House s
first `A Nod To Bob` which came out on 2001 marking
Dylan s 60th birthday - and that CD was the best
selling title in Red House Records history. The tracks
on this new version are are magnificent and feature
memorable interpretations of both familiar and unfamiliar
Dylan classics. Artists include Hot Tuna, John Gorka,
Eliza Gilkyson, Lucy Kaplansky, Jimmy LaFave, Spider
John Koerner, Danny Schmidt, Robin & Linda Williams,
Ray Bonneville, Storyhill, The Pines, Pieta Brown, Peter
Ostroushko, Meg Hutchinson, Guy Davis and Cliff
Eberhardt.

A well deserved 70th. birthday gift for Bob Dylan from the folks at Red House records. It features artists from their stable doing their take on Dylan songs- some quite well known, others not so. With Dylan, the choice is mind boggling when deciding what to cover.
This disc is the follow up to the wonderful original "Nod to Bob" done 10 years ago on his 60th. birthday. That was also done by Red House, and had some of the same performers as this disc.
Since Red House is basically a folk/Americana label, this disc comes from that direction. Nothing too heavy. It has some real legends- Spider John Koerner (Dylans old roomate in Mpls.)doing his usual funky romp on "Days of Forty Nine". Hot Tuna(Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, etc.) doing a rollicking "Mama,Let Me Lay it On You" with a great fiddle part.
It also has some newcomers like Meg Hutchinson doing a plaintive "Born in Time" and Danny Schmidt doing a beautiful reading of "Buckets of Rain".
It also features some of Red Houses' folk vets- like Cliff Eberhardt,John Gorka, and Ray Bonneville who deliver their usual great performances. Lets face it, with the choice of material to choose from in the vast Dylan song book, it's hard to go wrong.
I think this is a wonderful collection of some of Dylan's best done by some of today's best singer/songwriters/performers, who no doubt were all influenced by Mr. Bob himself. Highly reccommended.

Red House released 'A Nod to Bob' around Dylan's sixtieth birthday, and 'A Nod to Bob 2' on May 17, 2011, one week before his seventieth. The arrangements on the second volume reflect an alt-indie influence, but of course alt-indie music is itself influenced by the Beatles and Dylan (the #1 and #2 "greatest artists of all time" according to 'Rolling Stone'). In any case, the two volumes together begin to reflect the scope of Dylan's talent as a song-writer. (And, to be honest, many listeners will be glad that the 'Nods' do not reflect Bob's talent as a singer.) The real tribute to Dylan is the obscurity of many of the songs: The performers have listened to a LOT of Dylan, and in a number of cases the fresh arrangements and intense delivery here reflect a deep appreciation for some not-so-famous gems. Meg Hutchinson's "Born in Time" brings out the artistry and meaning of a song that is easily overlooked or forgotten. Pieta Brown does an amazing job with "Dirt Road Blues". Other stand-outs include "What Good Am I?" (The Pines), "Lay Down Your Weary Tune" (Storyhill), "The Days of 49" (Spider John Koerner), "Not Dark Yet" (Jimmy LeFave), and "Mozambique" (Peter Ostroushko). If you can name the albums where these songs first appeared, you are a pretty serious Dylan fan. Arguably, not one of them is the best song on its album, and not one of the albums would be among Dylan's top five. But you will want to hear them more than once. The Red House versions again make the case for Bob Dylan as the creative force who showed his own and succeeding generations of aspiring songwriters just what could be done within the popular song form.

Bob Dylan has entered the pantheon of enduring, immortal American songwriters, right along with the likes of George and Ira Gershwin or Jerome Kern, Hank Williams or Woody Guthrie. His body of work is a songbook from which artists of all genres draw, because the Dylan songbook is the voice of America. Recording a Dylan song is always more than doing a mere "cover." Doing a Dylan cover is a step up, not a comedown.

The first iteration of "A Nod to Bob," with its wide variety of artists and interpretations, is surprising and pleasing, and really reveals how much Dylan's music reaches into the roots and walks of life of America. "A Nod to Bob 2: An Artist's Tribute to Bob Dylan" is even better. The all-star lineup of top Redhouse Records performers on the album renders Dylan's music soulfully and with minimalist purity. From the very first notes of "What Good Am I?" by The Pines, the album is enthralling to the end, with Robin and LInda Williams doing "Walkin' Down the Line" as only they can. John Gorka does a country-western take on "Just Like a Woman." Hot Tuna, who seem to defy definition by genre, roll out a lot of fun on "Mama, Let Me Lay It on You." Storyhill's version of "Lay Down Your Weary Tune" is a beautiful time trip back to 1960s Greenwich Village. I first wondered at the inclusion of "House of the Rising Sun," since Bob didn't write it, but Guy Davis performs it as Dylan did, with its traditional blues structure rather than the version popularized by the Animals. Ray Bonneville (who reminded me of Dylan the very first time I heard him years ago) sings "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry" like he was born to it.

The original "A Nod to Bob" album was released ten years ago to mark Bob Dylan's sixtieth birthday. Unlike most collections of Dylan covers, which mix and match a fairly tired list of covers by pop singers over the last 40 years, that album included what were, I think, all new recordings by a fairly significant set of contemporary folk singers. For many listeners I think it may have provided an introduction to artists they might not have been familiar with previously, using Dylan's music as a bridge. On that collection, I particularly liked Spider John Koerner and Dave Ray's recording of Delia, which had a lot of character.

Ten years later, we have a sequel to mark Dylan's 70th birthday. It includes covers by many of the same artists as last time -- Cliff Eberhardt, Eliza Gilkyson (a totally enjoyable live rendition of Jokerman), Guy Davis, John Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky, and Spider John Koerner all come back for the second round. There's new blood too -- Danny Schmidt (who totally nails Buckets of Rain, a song I never cared for in Dylan's version or the often heard cover by Bette Midler), Hot Tuna, Jimmy LaFave, Meg Hutchinson, Peter Ostroushko, Pieta Brown, The Pines, Ray Bonneville, Robin & Linda Williams, and Storyhill, are all new to the sequel disc.

There's nothing radical here, but plenty of interesting and/or catchy renditions. Some dull ones too (Kaplansky's take on Every Grain of Sand is too similar to the original, I think), but that's what the fast-forward button is for.

Happy birthday, Bob.
