Bob Dylan's Music Box

News

01/08/2018

We are now at 200 Albums, 1,500 Songs, 5,000 Artists, 10,000 versions and 50,000 links to Bob Dylan related music! 

We continue to load content and would love your help... Thanks for supporting The Bob Dylan Project.

YouTube and Streaming services

The goal of including the YouTube links is to find the “best” Dylan covers and alternative versions culled from the many hundreds of thousands out there. “Best” is a very subjective word; at The Bob Dylan Project, every Dylan song is a masterpiece, regardless of who sings it. Some, but not us, would say Dylan’s songs are better done by others, reluctantly we accept their right to that opinion! What The Bob Dylan Project means by “best” is illustrated by this one: Patti Smith (Changing of the Guards) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cY2B_9KpRqk

The Bob Dylan Project would appreciate receiving your selections to replace or add to the existing versions where applicable. Convince us that your “best” versions are better than ours. Send your selections to The.Dylan.Project@Bigpond.com

Selection Guidelines

·       Must be “good”.

·       Only the “best” twenty versions by language.

·       Freely available on YouTube without copyright infringement.

·       Multiple free streaming options available.

·       Cleanly and professionally recorded.

·       Supporting artists devoted to the music of Bob Dylan. 

Indexing

This project acts as an index to all of Dylan’s recordings at the song and album level as well as an index by the other artists who have recorded the songs. The list of Dylan albums allows for a direct link to the complete album as well as a link from the album’s tracks back to the song listing holding links to other versions. There are additional links to the Bob Dylan official site by album and song so that the lyrics can be viewed where available and to documentation held within Wikipedia by song and album. The project is not about Dylan the man but the representation of the essence of the man through his music.

YouTube and External Link Errors

For various reasons links to YouTube and streaming services fail, usually because of copyright problems, but, in most cases as fast as a song is taken down a new replacement will be put up. So if a link fails simply manually search and you will most likely find the replacement. Please report broken links to The Bob Dylan Project so that we can update the master document. Report broken links to The.Dylan.Project@Bigpond.com

Formatting Errors

The team has been compiling this document for several years and errors and omissions are in no short supply. Please forward your comments and corrections to us at The.Dylan.Project@Bigpond.com thank you.
