Piotr Krupa: Twój w Pamięci Ślad

Recently discovered on-line is this CD of Polish Dylan covers by Piotr Krupa. The 13-song CD Twój w Pamięci Ślad: Pieśni Boba Dylana was released in 2008 by Folk Factory Records.
Unfortunately both the label's website and e-mail address appear to be defunct, and e-mails to other contact addresses have so far received no response, so current status of the album is unknown. I will add the album to the site when more information is available.

Ja Nim Nie Będę (It Ain't Me Babe)
Jutro Jest Bardzo Daleko (Tomorrow Is A Long Time)
