Bob Dylan has drawn from nearly every possible strain of American music in his long and at times baffling career, and while he’s borrowed freely from country, folk, blues, gospel, rockabilly, pop, rock, jazz, and beyond, his songs always come out sounding exactly like Bob Dylan and it’s difficult to imagine anyone else having written them. This set finds a tight group of Nashville players (they’re billed as the Grassmasters) running through a dozen Dylan songs in breakneck bluegrass style. The songs selected adapt nicely, but one misses Dylan at the helm -- no one does Dylan quite like Dylan.
