Dylan in new UNCUT/Cheap CDs/Levon Helm

Thanks to Martin Cowan:

* Dylan in new UNCUT

A 5 star review for "I'm Not There" in the latest UNCUT magazine, along with a feature on the Blackbushe show from 1978, AND the Long Ryders covering "Masters of War" on the covermount CD. And so it is a Bobby Christmas....

* Cheap CDs

HMV are also offering most of the Dylan back catalogue on a "two for £10" deal. Mind you, there's nothing new here really - remember in the days of vinyl, Sony used to shift a lot of the older Dylan albums under their "nice price" banner.

* Levon Helm

If you haven't already picked up on this, I'd like to commend the new Levon Helm LP "Dirt Farmer". With former Dylan touring band member Larry Campbell at the controls, this is a nice mixture of covers and originals, sparklingly recorded, and Levon in fine voice throughout. One for the Christmas list!
