Известный музыкант Ben Sidran,который играл ещё со Стивом Миллером выпустил альбом каверов Боба Дилана.
Ben Sidran, the local legend who wrote "Space Cowboy" in his time with the Steve Miller Band, won a Peabody for his NPR series Talking Jazz and produced albums for everyone from Van Morrison to Diana Ross, heads back to his roots on his newest CD, a collection of Bob Dylan covers.
Featuring a dozen classics, the album pays tribute to Dylan's legacy while forging its own identity as an original work. Filled from start to finish with low, dry, almost-spoken vocals, it makes you think of Dylan one moment and a smoky jazz club the next.
"Subterranean Homesick Blues" ventures into rap territory with a funky, jazzy groove, while "Tangled Up in Blue" creates the perfect soundtrack for a coffeehouse full of Beat poets. "Maggie's Farm" takes a psychedelic turn with a fantastically creepy organ solo reminiscent of Santana's "Black Magic Woman."
The final track, "Blowin' in the Wind," is one of the most stunning. Stripped down to a few simple, beautiful piano chords and Sidran's voice, it channels the gravity of Leonard Cohen while hinting at Tom Waits as well. It's definitely worth checking out.

В Шри Ланкийской прессе появилась статья о местной исполнительнице Nanda Malani в которой её сравнивают с Бобом Диланом.В статье упоминается также Владимир Высотский,названный русским Бобом Диланом.
Music and Mission – Bob Dylan to Nanda Malani
(March 05, Ontario, Sri Lanka Guardian) Music is a social force and unquestionably a powerful form of expression. Many elements of human existence are touched by music. Song has accompanied social movements, social justice and human freedom. Music can deeply affect the way that people think. Therefore, musicians can direct society with their musical ability, passion and sincerity.
Among the singers with a genuine passion for positive social stream, Bob Dylan plays a major role. American singer-songwriter and musician Bob Dylan made a deep impact in 1960 s and his songs became the anthems for the civil right and anti Vietnam War movement. He was called "master poet, caustic social critic and intrepid, guiding spirit of the counterculture generation"
Beside Bob Dylan, another female icon that emerged in 60 s was Joan Baez. As a musician and a singer Joan Baez stood for the ideals that she believed were correct. She protested at misleading government propaganda that clouded the nuclear proliferation, War on Vietnam and attacking of the Civil Right activists as Communist conspirators. Her song Birmingham Sunday was dedicated to the four little African American girls who were killed in the 1963 bombing of a Black Church by the KKK (Ku Klux Klan). Joan Baez pioneered to establish the US branch of Amnesty International that brought awareness on human right violations in the United States. In 2003, she performed in San Francisco to protest against the US invasion of Iraq.
Although the world is not fully aware of the music and mission of Vladimir Vysotsky who began performing in the 1960s, in the USSR was a talented as well as an outspoken artist. He was quite critical of the errors of the Communist Regime. He highlighted bureaucracy that ruled the system, criticized the unfair privileges of the elite and objected to repression. He could be called the Russian Bob Dylan. Although he was the living soul and conscience, of his time, his songs were forbidden to be played and his poems went unpublished. Vysotsky’s songs were more profound and carried the message of love and truth. He openly fought against the hypocrisy and double standards. He was the voice of the silent generation of the Soviet Union. Today Vysotsky is considered as a cultural icon and a musician with true a conscience.

Bob Dylan to play Thomond Park
Aiken Promotions are proud to announce a second show for Thomond Park in the guise of the legendary Bob Dylan. Bob will take to the stage at the Munster Stadium on July 4th. Columbia Records released Bob Dylan's studio album Together Through Life last April which received universal critical acclaim. Together Through Life was produced under the pseudonym Jack Frost, prompted by the composition of a new song, "Life Is Hard," which was written for a forthcoming film by French director Oliver Dahan (La Vie En Rose)
Together Through Life, was the 46th release from Bob Dylan, and follows 2006's Platinum album Modern Times, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and reached the top of the charts in seven additional countries and the Top 5 in 22 countries around the world and spent 2 weeks at No.1 in Ireland.
Bob Dylan's three previous studio albums have been universally hailed as among the best of his storied career, achieving new levels of commercial success and critical acclaim for the artist. The Platinum-selling Time Out Of Mind from 1997 earned multiple Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year, while "Love and Theft" which was no.2 album of the decade in Newsweek and No.1 album of the decade in Uncut Magazine continued Dylan's Platinum streak and earned several Grammy nominations and a statue for Best Contemporary Folk album. His most recent studio work, "Together Through Life" went straight into the Irish Charts at No.1 and became one of his biggest albums worldwide, selling more than 5 million copies and earning Dylan two more Grammys.
Those three studio albums fell within a ten-year creative span that also included:
An Oscar and Golden Globe win for, "Things Have Changed," written for the film Wonder Boys
A worldwide bestselling memoir; Chronicles, which spent 19 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List in 2001
A Martin Scorsese-directed documentary, No Direction Home in 2004
Several volumes of the best-selling Bootleg Series, which culminated in last year's highly-acclaimed Tell Tale Signs in 2005
Dylan was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."
He was also the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 1997, The French Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 1990, Sweden's Polar Music Award in 2000 and numerous other awards and accolades.

DYLAN AT NEWPORT - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
The Oscar-winning director MURRAY LERNER talks to UNCUT about The Other Side Of The Mirror, his brilliant concert movie of Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival, 1963 – 1965.
NH:Was Dylan a key performer at Newport in ’63?
I don’t think he was, no. Pete Seeger was, and Joan Baez. She was on the cover of Time magazine. And she brought Dylan to the festival. In ’64, as she said, they were the King and Queen of Newport. He walked the streets with a bull-whip, with her beside him.
Looking at the film now, how does he appear to you?
You see ease and a simple person in ’63. And in ’64 you see he feels safe enough, when he sings “It Ain’t Me Babe”, to not really care about the crowd. I don’t think even with “With God On Our Side” in ’64 that he really was with the crowd. It was just him, and Joan.
When he comes on at the end in ’64, he gets a hero’s welcome…
Right. There was also something I don’t think he ever did in his life since that day. He said to the crowd, after “Chimes Of Freedom”, “Thank you. I love you.” He was happy. That was an unusual song, there was less realism than before. He might have wondered how accepted it might be.
He played an electric set in 1965, which was met with a lot of resistance from the audience. What was the mood at the rehearsals like?
It felt to me like there was a little bit of uncertainty as to what was going to happen. It seems to me there was anxiety, in their joking around.
What could you hear on stage, after he came on and played “Maggie’s Farm”?
I heard a combination of boos and applause. And some catcalls. And then when he came back and did the acoustic songs, they got with it again. He was nervous when he came back, there’s no question about it. That was sweat you can see rolling down his face. And on “Mr. Tambourine Man”, asking for a harmonica from the crowd - the fact that he forgot his harmonica…
You can see his eyes swivelling in those close-ups…
Yeah. You don’t know what he ingested also before that, to keep him going. Then when he did “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” he was okay, I thought.
Also saying goodbye to the whole thing…
That’s right, yeah.
What does the film’s title refer to?
It’s the sense that he’s introduced as the mirror of his generation, but he isn’t. That’s why I put Ronnie Gilbert of the Weavers introducing him - “You know him, he’s yours” - at the start. He really isn’t yours!
Have you kept in touch with him?
It’s difficult to know him. And I felt better off not trying, because I wasn’t his type. Because I never took drugs.
What did you feel, looking back at this footage?
I feel as if I’m still there! Whenever I watch it, I’m at the Newport Festival. Most times, I feel I’m watching something new. The songs are really so startling that I feel every time I’m hearing something new.
How did you feel about Scorsese getting the credit for making this great film about Dylan, No Direction Home - when nearly all the key footage is by you and DA Pennebaker?
I was flattered that he used it, and that he put my name underneath the footage. And I was of course jealous of the fact that it was being used. My feelings were complicated. It got me this film to make, which was good…

Tourism officials urge Bob Dylan to come home to the Iron Range
HIBBING - Bob Dylan has made no secret of the fact that he didn't feel accepted as he grew up on the Iron Range.
But tourism officials say the times they are a-changin', to borrow a line from Dylan's third album. Now, they've launched an online campaign to get Dylan to come home and perform a concert.
Dylan was born Robert Zimmerman in 1941 in Duluth. His family moved to Hibbing in 1948.
"It's no secret that, years ago, Bob wasn't really accepted here, but times have changed...and so have the people of the Iron Range," said Cheyenne Denny, Executive Director of the Iron Range Tourism Bureau, in a press release. "Today, people have a true appreciation for Dylan and we are genuinely inviting Bob back to where his musical and poetic roots started, right here on the Iron Range."
The tourism bureau has launched a website, www.ComeHomeBob.com, where Dylan fans can sign a petition urging him to perform on the Iron Range. The bureau is also promoting the campaign through Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
An independent group has organized "Dylan Days" in Hibbing annually since 1991. This year's event is set for May 27-30. More information is available at www.DylanDays.com.
Нин,это блестящая идея,можно даже им петицию по этому поводу организовать.Хорошо бы он ещё с собой побольше народу взял.

Пугачева отсудила у Роспатента бренд "Филипп" и 200 рублей
Арбитражный суд Москвы удовлетворил в среду, 17 марта, иск Аллы Пугачевой к Роспатенту, вернув певице права на товарный знак "Филипп" в сфере образовательных услуг, сообщает РИА Новости.
Алла Пугачева является правообладателем товарного знака "Филипп" в общей сложности в 21-м классе МКТУ, включая образовательную сферу. В прошлом году Автономная некоммерческая образовательная организация "Филипп" из Самары обратилась в Палату по патентным спорам с требованием о прекращении охраны бренда "Филипп" в 41-м классе в связи с его неиспользованием в этой категории более трех лет.
На заседание Палаты Пугачева не явилась и не прислала никакого отзыва на заявление, мотивировав это тем, что не получила соответствующего уведомления. Между тем почтовая служба подтвердила факт доставки корреспонденции адресату. В связи с неявкой правообладателя Роспатент принял решение о прекращении охраны бренда. Позже певица опротестовала это решение в Арбитражном суде.
Журнал TIME поставил первым из десяти лучших ,выступление Боба Дилана на фестивале в Ньпорте в 1965 году.
Bob Dylan had only just gained national renown as a folksinger when his 1965 release Bringing It All Back Home eschewed his roots by using electric guitar in half the tracks. In that spirit, Dylan's performance at July '65's Newport Folk Festival incorporated a backing blues band and electric guitar.
The audience did not dig it, man. He drew vigorous boos and left after only four songs, only to be coaxed back onstage for a disjointed acoustic set. (Longstanding rumors that Pete Seeger tried to cut the sound system with an ax turned out to be untrue.) Dylan didn't return to Newport until 2002, when he was able to bring his electric guitar back without fear.

Is Bob Dylan Hip-Hop’s Godfather? His Ties to Beasties, Roots, More
Recently, a YouTube made the rounds of Bob Dylan raspily rapping his way through a solid chunk of LL Cool J’s classic “Mama Said Knock You Out.” The Internet had good time with “LOL” and “WTF” responses, but Dylan’s symbiotic relationship with hip-hop actually runs fairly deep. Hip-hop and Dylan were both gestated in New York, distrust the government, aren’t fond of using their birth names, and have a pretty evocative way with words. And although Dylan recently told Street Newspaper that he doesn’t really listen to rap all that much, he did admit, “I love rhyming for rhyming sake. I think that’s an incredible art form.”
Let’s take a look back at the many times their paths have crossed:
1965: Bob Dylan, “Subterranean Homesick Blues”
Is this the very first rap song ever? Dylan’s rollicking “Subterranean Homesick Blues” predates hip-hop’s labyrinthine rhyme schemes, anti-authority philosophy, pop-culture obsessions and street-level turns-of-slang; distilling bohemian counterculture, war paranoia and the ongoing civil rights struggle into a two-minute barrage of fascinating wordplay. At once political and pop, “Subterranean Homesick Blues” was Dylan’s first Top 40 single.
1986: Kurtis Blow featuring Bob Dylan, “Street Rock”
After Dylan borrowed a couple of Blow’s backup singers for a mid-’80s record, he returned the favor by donating an intro to the rapper’s headbanging “Street Rock,” the opening track to the 1986 album Kingdom Blow. Blow and his bodyguard showed up at Dylan’s Malibu home, and Bob dropped science in one take. In Chronicles, Volume 1, Dylan admits it was in fact Blow who turned him on to rap music, and had since become a fan of Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Ice T and N.W.A. “These guys weren’t standing around bullshitting,” said Dylan. “They were beating drums, tearing it up, hurling horses over cliffs. They were all poets and knew what was going on”
1987: Public Enemy, Yo! Bum Rush the Show
Due to his firebrand attitude and endlessly dissectable lyrics, Def Jam publicists pitch Chuck D to the editors of rock magazines as “the new Bob Dylan.”
Quoth Mike D on Dylan: “He’s one of the first b-boys, if not the first. What more to say?” The ultimate arbiters of New York boho cool, the snotty beat poets in the Beasties were naturally drawn to Dylan. Their landmark Paul’s Boutique borrows a line from Dylan’s protest-of-protests “Maggie’s Farm” on their lovable bum tale “Johnny Ryall.” And on “3-Minute Rule,” MCA even drops his own unique props: “I’m just chillin’, like Bob Dylan.” Three years later, the boys would sample Dylan’s “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” for their “Finger Lickin’ Good” — a clearance that would ultimately cost them $700. Mike D told Boston Rock, “He asked for $2,000. I thought it was kind of fly that he asked for $2,000 and I bartered Bob Dylan down. That’s my proudest sampling deal.” Their upcoming Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 is set to feature another sample of Dylan, a spoken word bit where he talked about the Boys on his satellite radio show.
1997: Wyclef Jean, “Gone ‘Til November”
The rapper pulls out the line, “I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door, like I’m Bob Dylan,” and the next thing you know, Bob is pulling a quick but memorable cameo in the video at the 2:30 mark.
1999: Black Thought, Common, Mos Def, Dice Raw, Flo Brown, the Jazzyfatnastees and the Roots, “Hurricane”
This massive posse cut from the movie of the same name details the racial profiling and imprisonment of boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter — much like the 1975 Bob Dylan song of the same name.
2006: Bob Dylan, “Mama Said Knock You Out”
In the second episode of his Sirius Satellite Radio program, Theme Time Radio Hour, Dylan dropped a gravelly rendition of the LL Cool J classic. Naturally, LL Cool J was totally honored, and told TMZ, “That blows me away… What he needs to do is call me and let’s do it together. I encourage everyone to get out there and buy Bob Dylan’s records”
2008: Evidence featuring Fashawn, “The Far Left”
In the video for “The Far Left,” Dilated Peoples MC Evidence dropped a loving tribute to D.A. Pennebaker’s iconic clip for “Subterranean Homesick Blues” with Dylan’s cue cards updated to feature some more modern, graffiti-influenced scrawl.
2009: Bob Dylan featuring Will.i.am, “Forever Young (Continued)”
Bobby D and the Black Eyed Pea teamed up for a remix to his 1974 single “Forever Young.” It was used in a Pepsi commercial that aired during the 2009 Super Bowl. Its “the more things change, the more things stay the same” message was more saccharine than a dumptruck full of diet soda.
2009: Kid Cudi, “Highs N Lows”
The soul-bearing rapper created a melancholy mood by rapping over Dylan’s 1969 classic “Lay Lady Lay” on this mixtape staple.
2009: Juelz Santana featuring YelaWolf, “Mixin’ Up The Medicine”
Upstart Alabama MC YelaWolf is already an effortless blend of hip-hop, country and rock, the perfect guy to flip the the opening line of “Subterranean Homesick Blues” on the chorus of this Juelz Santana single. Dylan’s line “Johnny’s in the basement mixing up the medicine/I’m on the pavement thinking about the government,” was already perfectly hip-hop couplet that was just sitting there, begging to be recontextualized.
