    Wonderful Nod to American Classics

    Probably not what many fans of Bob Dylan would expect to hear, given his releases of the past 10-15 years. These songs, all sung at one time by Frank Sinatra, are American classics. Some are more well known, some from deep within the Sinatra catalog. The arrangements are all sparse and somewhat simplified compared the big band or heavily orchestrated versions from the 30's-60's, allowing a solid focus on Dylan's vocal. For the first time in many years, he puts an incredible effort into his singing, enunciating clearly and maintaining the beautiful melodies. Is he pitch perfect? No. Is his voice that of a grumpy old curmudgeon? Yes, somewhat. But he sings these songs with passion and emotion, and gives the listener the feeling that he has lived every word of these songs of lost love and regret. If you're not a fan of this type of music, the older Sinatra classics, this CD is not for you. But if you like Dylan, and you're open to styles of music different from anything he's done before, this is a must buy.

    Bob Dylan takes chances on this release as these are renditions of standards by different people that he does versions of rather than new material of his own.

    Not quite what you might expect from Dylan. A bit old timey. Not bad, just very different

    Interesting choice of songs, but not sure they work with Bob Dylan ' s voice. I think he did this for his own pleasure and I'm sure he had fun doing it.

    So, bought this latest Bob Dylan awhile ago because....heck, it's BOB DYLAN and "other" reviews gave it decent ink. I listened to it once and that was all she wrote. It's filled away with the Dylan catalog and unlikely to be pulled out again.

    Perhaps Mr. Zimmerman is feeling gravity's pull. This collection of standards is a good example of taking well known songs and making them your own through alternative(pedal-steel)arrangements.
