Thanks to Lars M. Banke for access to his Scandinavian covers data,

Tenho Immonen for many scans of rare Finnish LPs and CDs,

Anton Bohnen and Manuel Garcia Jara for their ongoing contributions of scans and info of covers new and old,

and all other contributors. With all your help the DataBase becomes more complete every day.

My Music: Folk Rewind, a Public Television documentary about the folk era broadcast here in the US concluded with several performances from a recent folk reunion concert staged in Pittsburgh (date unknown.) A DVD of the documentary includes these plus more performances, as does a CD of the live show only. Included are Blowin' In The Wind by a reunited Chad Mitchell Trio and three Dylan songs by Roger McGuinn: My Back Pages / The Times They Are A-Changin' / Mr. Tambourine Man.
Both the DVD and CD are currently only available as premiums with donations. Do a Google search to find more information and to find your nearest PBS station offering the premiums.
