Featured Release This Week From Bettye LaVette + Studio One Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Feb 5, 2018

Bob Dylan covers, even entire albums of other artists covering Dylan songs, are not uncommon.  What makes Bettye LaVette's new Things Have Changed special is her sterling reputation as a song interpreter.  Her talent as a performer, applied to the songs of arguably the greatest single songwriter of the past few decades, is definitely worth hearing.  Although LaVette picks a couple of Dylan's most well known songs from the '60s, she also draws from other decades, with some deep album cuts proving to be inspired choices for the vocalist.  Also inspired are many of the arrangements LaVette and her band worked up for these tunes, particularly for "The Times They Are A-Changin'."
