A tribute to Dylan's 1980s songs

Liner notes by Jonathan Lethem

Gatefold double LP includes album download code

Out today, Bob Dylan In The '80s: Volume One is a tribute album to Bob's 1980s catalog, covering the period that starts with 1980's Saved and ends with 1990's Under The Red Sky. The brainchild of producers Jesse Lauter (Elvis Perkins, The Low Anthem) and Sean O'Brien (Dawes, PAPA), the mission of Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One is to shed new light on a large cache of Bob Dylan songs that are often overshadowed by his '60s and '70s output and songs from his later career renaissance.

Rolling Stone notes "Amazingly, the album makes a completely convincing case for sniffed-at Dylan songs like 'Brownsville Girl' and 'Wiggle Wiggle.' Such pieces have never been covered before — amazing since Dylan may be the most-covered artist of the last 50 years, save the Beatles," and NY Daily News adds "It's a pleasure to hear Dylan's '80s understated gospel, bluesy rock, and pop rescued from its shamefully dated production. Any Dylan fans lucky enough to already hold the occasional '80's gem such as 'Sweetheart Like You,' 'Dark Eyes,' and 'Pressing On' in high regard will only find their love for some of Dylan's best 80's tunes deepened by fitting covers from Craig Finn, Dawnes Landes & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, and Glen Hansard, respectively."
