Founding original member Jeff Hanna has proudly worn his love for Bob Dylan on his sleeve since he first saw him perform at his high school in Long Beach, California, and this album of Dylan covers is a perfect match, and a fantastic addition to the NGDB catalog.

The band has gone through many personnel changes over the decades, and features three new members on this record: singer/songwriter/bass player Jim Photoglo,  fiddle player Ross Holmes; and Hanna’s son Jaime on guitar.  The band also enlisted some notable guest stars for Dirt Does Dylan including Rosanne Cash, Jason Isbell, Steve Earle, The War and Treaty, and Larkin Poe.

And here’s a fine rendition of “I Shall Be Release” with Larkin Poe:
