New in the DylanCover.com collection: Merrill

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right (3:59)
Under the Island Sky
CD: HiYo Music HY-M198; 1998 (US)

Another obscure cover without much information available. All I know about Merrill is that he is a singer-songwriter from Florida. In the liner notes he says he's been playing for 20 years. The only contact info on the 9 year old CD is a web link to the now defunct IUMA. I couldn't find a new site for Merrill or HiYo Music, or any evidence of other recordings. On this collection he sings an acoustic Don't Think Twice, pleasant but standard fare. There are 2 originals plus songs by Kate Wolf, John Stewart, John Prine, Tom Paxton, Merle Travis and others.
Found on eBay for 99ยข.
