I'm Not There [Soundtrack]

This is one of the last films Heath Ledger was in....he's amazing as is this movie...I recommend the movie, but it's not on DVD yet so here's the soundtrack :) Many people have covered Bob Dylan's songs over the years, but few quite like this. On the double-disc soundtrack that accompanies Todd Haynes' extremely confounding biopic of the already plenty confounding folk icon, we get the likes of Sonic Youth, Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, the Hold Steady, and Antony & The Johnsons doing their best Dylan impressions and often failing gloriously. Former Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus does a particularly fine job oozing his way through "Ballad of a Thin Man," while Wilco's Jeff Tweedy draws the moody beauty out of "Simple Twist of Fate," and Sufjan Stevens lends his typically baroque touch to "Ring Them Bells." Special credit has to go to the Million Dollar Bashers, the unofficial house band that includes Steve Shelley on drums, John Medeski on piano, and Tom Verlaine on guitar, along with other notable musicians. The generous track list and dynamic set of contributors promises that this album will provide plenty of awe long after the film itself has been forgotten. --Aidin Vaziri

  • The original mono recordings of any well produced album crafted during the golden age of mono recordings is a treat to my contemporary the ears.

The original mono recordings of any well produced album crafted during the golden age of mono recordings is a treat to my contemporary the ears. Here in the 21st century where audio alchemy is injected in every aspect of our lives mono records often are no more than an interesting oddity, but I think of mono as a realm in itself, a realm that has its own rules, texture and feel. But what I do have a problem with is rubberneck and tailgaters.

Tons of great artists covering their favorite Dylan tracks. Standouts include Karen O (from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) doing "Highway 61" and Cat Power singing "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again". It's an indie all-star cast of singers, capped with the man himself singing "I'm Not There". (P.S. be sure to buy the iTunes version. It's $2 cheaper than amazon and comes with 3 extra songs)
