Senor Dierks Bentley Joins Bob Dylan Compilation CD
Am I the only one who, after hearing "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)" on Dierks Bentley's Up On The Ridge CD, had to know more about the meaning behind the Bob Dylan lyrics?
It seems there are a few possible interpretative themes--patriotic, religious, love or drugs--to name a few.
Whatever your take, be sure to give special attention to your calendars for January 24, 2012--when a live version of the song by Dierks will be available as one of the tracks on the forthcoming Bob Dylan tribute compilation CD.
The title of the 4-CD compilation is Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International. The human rights organization fights against censorship and activities on behalf of free speech.
Other artists include, Sugarland, who will contribute a live version of "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You," and Dylan himself singing the title track.
Given the title of the CD, I'm going with the patriotic theme. How about you?
