Hi everyone,
The reviews are starting to come in on our Dylan tribute "A Nod To Bob". (In stores May 8) Thought I'd share this one with you. Tune in to All Things Considered (National Public Radio) on May 24th for a feature on this album on Bob's 60th birthday. We are starting to put our catalogue together for 2001 and if you have any comments or review of the "Nod To Bob", email me and I will collect these for inclusion. Thanks again for all the kind comments on the John Gorka and Nod To Bob album. Lucy Kaplansky's new album is finished and we are starting to sequence it and get it ready for you.

Have a great spring,
Bob Feldman

You might not expect much from a Dylan tribute album limited to the artists of one small label, but if so, you're in for a surprise: This CD turns out to be every bit as inspired as anything on the all-star Madison Square Garden tribute that marked Dylan's 30th year in the music business. One reason is that the artists on the Red House label (which happens to be based in the state Dylan hails from) prove extremely well-suited to the task and well-matched to the material. Another is that that material is just so darn wonderful. There's no way a single disc could do justice to the mind-bogglingly large Dylan catalog; this could have been a ten- or 15-CD set and the quality wouldn't have flagged one bit. In fact, this collection doesn't even touch on such career highlights as Blood on the Tracks; it focuses mostly on the 1960s when, as the liner notes point out, most of the artists here were in their formative years as performers and Dylan was their major musical influence. Of course, if you have to pick one Dylan period, the '60s era isn't exactly a bad choice. The results here are stunning. While there's not a weak track on the disk, standouts include Suzy and Maggie Roche's version of The Basement Tapes' "The Clothesline Saga," which perfectly captures Dylan's humor; Cliff Eberhardt's "I Want You," which transforms the upbeat original into a somber, haunting \ballad; Guy Davis' accordion-spiced "A Sweetheart Like You," which features drumming by the Band's Levon Helm; and Martin Simpson's effusive "Boots of Spanish Leather." If you're a Dylan lover, this album is a must -- and if you're not, one listen will probably go a long way toward changing that.
