Happy Birthday Bob























Today is Bob Dylan's birthday, so let's listen to some rarities and non-LP tracks. Below we have Bob's tribute via satellite to Johnny Cash; a duet with Dr. Ralph Stanley; tributes to Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, and my personal favorite Warren Smith; some outtakes from Oh Mercy; a version of "Hazel" from the afternoon rehearsals for his MTV Unplugged gig; the original "Tombstone Blues," with backing vocals by The Chambers Brothers; and a moment of inspired giddiness between the Bob and Richard Manuel from The Basement Tapes.

Please Enjoy:

Folks, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but please DO NOT DIRECT LINK TO THE MP3's. This will eventually cause my server to crash. you can download these tracks on a mac by holding down the option key and clicking on the link. I'm not sure about a PC but I think it is right-click. If you must link to this - link to the post and not the MP3's. Thanks, Ted

Hi, would like to say thanks for your site. So nice to discover all this golden stuff !! It's like a travel in time. I am more on a calypso/reggae/world/electro/
afrobeat/electro/ kind of music, but as a melomaniac, I am so glad to listen to good old united states american music here in France. Thank you so much.
