New in Dylan Cover Albums:
So Happy Just To See You Smile

New in the Various Artists pages of Dylan Cover Albums is So Happy Just To See You Smile, a collection of 22 new Dylan covers released by Hanky Panky Records of Spain. Most of the performers are from Spain, with a few exceptions (see tracklist below.)
Since nearly all the performers are new to me, it was a fun listen not knowing what to expect from track to track, which range through Folk,
Blues, Country, Rockabilly and more. All songs are performed in English (except for the Spanish lines in Romance In Durango, of course!)
A well-done and enjoyable project, highly recommended.

More info and listen to a few tracks at MySpace.
The CD can be ordered directly from Hanky Panky Records.
Thanks to Hanky Panky Records

All the songs on this CD are in English.

There are many covers in Spanish, in several dialects. Usually I don't know and list them as Spanish, but some are listed as Castellano, esp. by J.M. Baule.
See covers from Spain in the DataBase: http://www.baseportal.com/cgi-bin/baseportal.pl?htx=/dylancov/main&Country==ES

Thanks for the link.
