Bob Dylan's Songs in Garageland

I recently (last few months) downloaded this set, and I swear I don't remember from where (honestly, I aways try to allocate proper credit, although my organizational skills are similar to that of a 12 year old, and not bright one at that. If I swiped this off of your blog and you see it here, please let me know so I can credit you.

This is a combination made in heaven, so to speak, the lyrical genius of Dylan in the context of amatuerish rock n roll......it's so perfect. Every track here has it's merits, but I'll point out a couple.....please don't think of this as "disrespectful" of Dylan or any of that shit, he'd probably like this set. Somehow they missed out on the Shadows of Knight's super-great version of "Ballad of a Thin Man", but beleive me there are plenty of tunes here, reinterpereted for either a Dylan fan OR a garage rock fan (or, both, as those of us of higher intellect tend to be)...

Let's  start by mentioning The Soup Green's take on "Like a Rolling Stone"......what could be better than a bunch of garage-rockers getting all "serious" and taking on the complex lyrics of that classic.....The Byrds' version of "My Back Pages" is fairly well known and probably cuts the original, The Mark 5 take on (my fave) "Maggie's Farm" (I must confess, I have NO IDEA what that song is supposed to be about, don't tell me I don't want to know, it used to scare me when my Dad played it when I was a kid, and Rage Against the Machine's version was pretty scary too)....Chocolate Watchband, who were better than they are often given credit for, turn in "It's All Over Now baby Blue" (I think without checking that the 13th Floor Elevators may have done that one up as well), Jack Bedient DARES to take on the complex "Subteranian Homesick Blues" with mixed results, and The Barbarians, in my opinion another garage band that was more skilled than their reputation, treat us to their version of "Mr Tambourine Man".........and on and on.

This is album, REALLY enjoyed listening to it and HOPE the creator steps forward so I can credit him/her (I don't even know if it's a homemade internet creation or a "legit" release), but it is damn great and thanks  a million to whomever compiled it.
