Great singers good songs powerful voices, somewhat different to what I had expected but still enjoyable, the first track is the best but the others are good. Deep south soul spiritual gospel music with a Dylan lyric.

How other people hear Bob.
Grabbed this one because I like to use Dylan/Springsteen/Waits/Cohen influences in my Church services. Was running out of easy to choose material and needed some new inspiration, so started googling and found The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan... Perfect! Bought it without looking into it too much, and when I received it I put it on in the car on the way home from the PO Box. Pleasantly surprised to hear it is a covers CD of Dylan's Gospel songs. That was cool, as I hadn't heard a couple of them by Dylan anyway, and the ones that I had heard were done so well by the covering artist that it gave a new perspective on some old classics. Love this CD for its own content. My original intent was to get some ideas and new material to bring to my congregation, but what I found was a great CD in its own right that I listen to because it's a cool CD! It's definitely not a 'Dylan' CD, so if you're looking for something classic Dylan you'll be disappointed with this CD. If however you're after songs written by Dylan interpreted by some very capable and worthy musicians, then this CD will likely please you to no end.Read full review
