The Gospel Chapel Band added to
Dylan Cover Albums

The Gospel Chapel Band presents The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan has been added to Dylan Cover Albums HERE.
The Victoria, Australia band's first album was released last month and is a fine selection of Dylan's gospel songs, including Man Of Peace and Ring Them Bells from non-gospel Dylan albums. Several of the 9 band members take turns on lead vocals.
It's good to see Dylan's gospel era get some "cover"-age. The Limited Edition of the album is a very nice package that includes a 48 page commentary book in a slipcase (shown at left) with the CD in a jewelcase. I highly recommend the album, if you can find it.
You can listen to a few tracks, get more info and contact the band on their MySpace page (MySpace account required to use their messaging service.)
I'm told they put on a great live show, so if you're in that part of the world check them out.
Thanks to Guryel Ali of the band and Nick McMahon
