Turns out the whole tracklisting for the Amnesty International Bob Dylan tribute album isn't, as we previously suggested, You’re a Big Girl Now: An All-Female Dance-Pop Tribute to Bob Dylan. At all.
First off, you should know that this thing has four CDs, which means that assembling an album with any overarching similarities other than "we're all covering Dylan here" would be impressive. It has Bad Religion and it has Ke$ha. It has Evan Rachel Wood and it has Joan Baez, Maroon 5 and Flogging Molly. It's got a group of musicians you might have assembled yourself by culling all the well-known artists from All Music Guide and randomly choosing a few.
Well, OK, that's an exaggeration. The similarity is probably their support and/or experience with Dylan and/or Amnesty. But even leaving that aside, these people fall into a few categories. There are the obvious choices we're OK with (of course Adele and TashBed are on there, as are the likes of Diana Krall). There are the obvious but still welcome choices--we'll never have bad words to say about Lucinda Williams or Marianne Faithfull covering Bob Dylan. There are the obvious and less welcome choices, by which we mean the Dave Matthews Band. There are the less obvious, more welcome choices (Thea Gilmore is fantastic. Great to see the Carolina Chocolate Drops on here.) And then there's this.
