As Bob Dylan celebrates each decade of service by playing it through as if nothing has happened, his fans pay tribute at every milestone. Much like the first A Nod to Bob that celebrated his 60th birthday, A Nod To Bob 2 features adult-contemporary singer-songwriters who have been influenced by the great songwriter. (Actually, that would be everyone.) Many of the same artists from the first volume are here. John Gorka plays a straight, emotive version of “Just Like a Woman.” Lucy Kaplansky takes on the gospel-like “Every Grain of Sand.” Guy Davis brings the blues for the traditional “House of the Rising Sun” that Dylan covered on his first album. Jimmy LaFave nicely twists “Not Dark Yet,” a later Dylan tune from Time Out of Mind. The Pines capture the mystery of “What Good Am I?” Storyhill immerse themselves in the beautiful melody that is “Lay Down Your Weary Tune.” Eliza Gilkyson takes a bite out of the onslaught of “Jokerman.” Dylan’s songs are so rich and open to interpretation that every version gives you something in return.
