Another great tribute is Poet: A tribute to Townes Van Zandt. Unfortunetely no Dylan contribution here, but it does have Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris and Nanci Griffith.

The new Ally McBeal 'soundtrack' cd by Vonda Shepard has a wonderful cover of Dylan's don't think twice. The cd is called For Once in My Life Featuring Vonda Shepard.

Another soundtrack for a tv show, The Sopranos, has a new Dylan song !!! It's called Return To Me. From the Columbia press release: Bob Dylan is on hand with an accordion-tinged candlelit version of Dean Martin's 1962 hit "Return To Me" recorded especially for the series. The cd is titled The Sopranos - Peppers and Eggs: Music from the HBO Series and also features songs by Elvis Costello, Sting, Keith Richards and others.

Down The Highway

The life of Bob Dylan. This is the title of a new Dylan biography. This time is not written by a well known Dylanologist, but by Howard Sounes, a journalist who also wrote a book on the serial killer couple Fred and Rose West.

New Books

Q Magazine has a Dylan special out. You can find it at any good magazine store, though in case you can't you can go here.
Clinton Heylin has updated his Dylan biography lately. From what I read so far about it, it seems that he mostly added filth and gossip about Dylan. Only recommended if you haven't gotten the original yet. You can get it from, or or th e original in paperback form.
