Miscellaneous ramblings...

» The next and last DataBase update for 2010 will be at the end of the month.

» Two covers in the Dutch Gronings dialect will be added to the DataBase at the next update, both are Make You Feel My Love but they are different translations:
- Wia Buze - Ik mag die aibels geern on Mien wad, mien stilte (2009)
- Irene Wilkens - Wait dat ik van die hol on Voutstappen in de snij [2010 EP]
Thanks to Hans Bosch

While there are probably "Gronings" covers listed only as "Dutch," these are the first two labeled as "Gronings" in the DataBase.
I appreciate any details about the dialects or languages of translated covers, either new or already listed.

The mid-60s live covers by Hugues Aufray have been updated in the DB to show their original LP releases (Olympia 64 and En direct de l'Olympia,) previously I only had info of the later CD reissues. The Aufray Collector's Guide has also been updated.
Thanks to Anton Bohnen

» Phish has released Live at the Legendary Alpine Valley Music Theatre, a 2-CD+2-DVD set of their August 2010 shows. The 8/14 performance of The Mighty Quinn appears on both the CD and DVD.

» Ace Records is releasing a deluxe expanded 2xCD of Rick Nelson's In Concert - The Troubadour, 1969 album. In addition to the original album's three Dylan songs - If You Gotta Go Go Now, She Belongs To Me, and I Shall Be Released - the new CD includes two versions of Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You, plus five additional performances of the original 3 songs (1,2,2 respectively.) All 42 tracks were taken from the same set of concerts at The Troubadour from Oct.29 to Nov.2 1969. TBR 1/31/11 (UK.)

» A three hour radio show of Dylan covers hosted by Web Wizard Mike on Mana'o Radio KEAO-FM from Maui, Hawaii can be heard (or downloaded) from archive.org. Not much will be new to collectors, but it's a worthwhile listen if you want to hear many of the well-known covers. Show starts at 7:20 of the 3+ hour mp3.
