Added to Translations: Gian Pieretti

Caro Bob Dylan, an Italian CD by Gian Pieretti has been circulating sine 1997, but I have previously resisted adding it to Dylan Cover Albums since the concensus was that it was a bootleg. The original CD was on the Pull label, and Italian collectors I had asked were of the opinion that it was not an official release. Recently it has reappeared, now on the Fuego label. This new incarnation appears to be more legit, as it includes mail & telephone info for Fuego (but still the same awful artwork!)
With Dylan in the title and 5 Dylan covers in Italian it qualifies for inclusion. The title-track is an original song by Pieretti. I have no links for the label or retailers, but the CD has been offered on Italian eBay.

The Dylan covers:
La Risposta (Blowin' In The Wind)
Mr. Tambourine Man
I Tempi Son Cambiati (The Times They Are A-Changing)
C'e' Una Pioggia (Rainy Day Women #12 & 35)
Bambina (It Ain't Me Babe)

Thanks to Lars M. Banke and Arie de Reus for info about this CD.
