Bob Dylan – Fallen Angels

Jeff Slate of Esquire magazine recently pronounced Bob Dylan The Greatest American Singer Of All Time. A subjective opinion, obviously, like asking who was the real Allman Brothers natural virtuoso, Duane or Dickey (Dickey of course). But no matter what you think of Dylan’s voice, it’s back again on his second album of Sinatra covers in as many years, Fallen Angels. And it’s wonderful.

Various Artists – Hank Williams: The Lost Notebooks

If anyone other than Bob Dylan had been spearheading this project, there probably would have been a ton of criticism levied against it. How can you imagine finishing a painting started by Da Vinci? When you look at it that way, I have to even admit that it doesn’t make a lot of sense. However, somehow it all comes together for the better on this disc. Comprised of compositions started but never finished by Hank Williams in the same Cadillac that he entered into eternity, the lyrics were headed to the dumpster when someone…
