Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan, Vol. 38

 Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan, Vol. 38: Time To Carve Another Notch

They say illegal downloading is killing recorded music, and I'm starting to believe them: from a peak of about 1500 downloads on a new volume of NSD, we're now down to around 300. I guess everyone else is getting them off Pirate Bay (or Music Ruined My Life). And now with the competition from Amnesty International's four CD Dylan cover set, I really expect to take a hit. But there is some spectacular music here, and that's the important thing.

As always, a big thanks to the tapers, the original uploaders, the nice folks who've sent me recordings, the fine artists who've created cover artwork, and especially the performers and most of all the composer. Due to the many different sources, I am not including lineages. I have done nothing to the original files but normalize the levels and fade in and out on each track (using Cool Edit). If you've got something good that deserves consideration for future volumes, PM me.

Happy Thanksgiving--Jeff.
