Upstream Fishing All the Words, He Is: Birthday Cards for Bob Dylan by Craig Cardiff (EP)

Big, wordy title for an EP of covers by rock’s most legendary wordy songwriter. The song selection shows a good range of Dlyan’s protest songs and love songs. Cardiff’s delivery is genuine and authentic, taking it out of the dangerous “karaoke” category that tribute albums often fall into, but similar enough to qualify as a solid covers/tribute album and not a complete reworking to the point beyond recognition (the polar opposite other risk when engaging in a covers album).

Five bucks on Bandcamp is a dollar a song. Well worth it.
