Bob Dylan Does It His Way With An Album Of Sinatra Covers

During his first interview in three years legendary, rock poet Bob Dylan talked about his love of Frank Sinatra and his decision to release an album of covers of the crooner’s songs.

Dylan, 73, is a true American legend. He has been in the public eye for over 50 years, and yet he remains an enigma. He is famously reclusive and private, and even on stage, he rarely communicates other than through his music. This year marks 40 years since the release of Dylan’s most personal album Blood on the Tracks, and many Dylan fans hold the view that his more recent albums contain some of the best songs he has ever written. It may therefore seem like a strange time to release an album of cover versions.

Not according to Bob, who told AARP that he has been thinking about doing this album for a long time.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
