VA - I'm Not There OST

Eddie Vedder, Sonic Youth, Calexico, Stephen Malkmus, Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, Iron & Wine, Karen O, Sufjan Stevens, Jack Johnson, The Hold Steady, Mason Jennings, Jeff Tweedy, Willie Nelson, The Black Keys, and Antony & The Johnsons all do Dylan covers for this 2 CD soundtrack to the biopic, and they all do such a good job that you don't really have to be a Dylan fan to appreciate this album. It does help though, particularly for Sufjan's total reworking of "Ring Them Bells" and "Goin To Acapulco" with Jim James from My Morning Jacket.

Agreed on the Jim James/Calexico track...a few misses, but some pretty stellar covers on here.

Words cannot describe my feelings towards Dylan. I'm dying to see this movie
