Dylan Night Band @ LMA

The Dylan Night Band, a Dylan tribute band from Germany, has a show posted at the Live Music Archive. All 17 tracks now available in FLAC & mp3 formats.
There are also some new and different tracks
on their MySpace page
Four of these are
downloadable for MySpace users (One More Cup Of Coffee / Visions Of Johanna / Tomorrow Is A Long Time / A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall.) Watchtower is listen-only but I believe it's the version from the LMA show.

Miscellaneous ramblings...

The advertisements now appearing at the top of the DataBase pages are placed there by the free DataBase hosting service, not by me, and do not benefit DylanCover.com directly (other than helping to provide the free service.)

Four covers by Pat Nevins can be heard on his MySpace page (downloadable for registered members.) The tracks are recent live recordings by Pat in a duo with Stu Allen.
Buckets Of Rain / You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go / Tomorrow Is A Long Time / She Belongs To Me
Pat released Shakey Zimmerman, a half-Dylan/half-Neil Young album in 2003.

A cover of On The Road Again by That Guy From ELO can be heard (and downloaded for registered members) at his MySpace page

Some of the albums by Germany's Gerd Rube are now available at CD Baby and/or some of the download services.
CD Baby has 1996's Live & Easy with Mighty Quinn and 2005's For My Friends - Alive in 2005 with Like A Rolling Stone.
1994's For My Friends - Live & in Person with Knockin' On Heaven's Door is available at the download services, including iTunes and amazon-mp3

New in Dylan Cover Albums: SFUZZI East/West

Now added to Dylan Cover Albums HERE is The Reluctant Prophet: Songs of Bob Dylan '76 Back, a new album of 13 Dylan songs by SFUZZI East/West, a collaboration of American and Italian musicians. The album was recorded 2002-06 in Torino, Italy and Seattle.
As promised by the liner notes, the album has a "unique flavor" as a result of the mix of styles and instrumentation utilized: classical and jazz guitar, a reggae intro to Don't Think Twice, hints of bluegrass, and more. Lead vocals are by Jeff Winston.
Highly recommended.
More info about the group & album at Cello Room Productions
Audio samples and international ordering available at CD Baby

The Tracklist:
Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat / Spanish Harlem Incident / Don't Think Twice, It's All Right / As I Went Out One Morning / If You See Her Say Hello / Boots Of Spanish Leather / One More Cup Of Coffee (Valley Below) / To Ramona / I Shall Be Released / Knockin' On Heaven's Door / Buckets Of Rain / I'll Be Your Baby Tonight / It's All Over Now, Baby Blue

Thanks to Michael Tearson for reporting this CD
