  1. Thanks for putting together!
    Allow me to share, “Forever Young” (from Italy):

  2. Awesome project!!!!!! Thank you so much for doing it. Will spend Bob’s BD drinking deeply.

  3. Dave Van Ronk was a beauty. Voice like sandpaper but still makes it sound so beautiful.

  4. O what a wonderful idea!
    Finally there’s someone out there to do justice to what is the most fascinating fact in the Dylan universe to me – that unbelievably huge number of Dylan covers across all musical styles (and in lots of different languages). I’m a big fan of Dylan covers and still love to discover new ways of doin’ Dylan. A GREAT idea to honor the man and to celebrate his 70th birthday! Thanxaton for that!

    Well, even if I can’t guess the three missing songs because I’m pretty sure they’re all covered (and I haven’t read and checked everything here, yet)…there’s chances that I can help you out…I’d be glad to do so. In case you want me to check my collection and resources, just send me an email…

    Keep on BOBin’!
