Dawn Of Dylan - Hugo Montenegro's Dawn Of Dylan

Hugo Montenegro's Dawn Of Dylan
GWP ST 2003

I've been finding a number of "covers" albums lately. Albums of this nature can be great fun but most are not successful in breathing new life into well known pop tunes.

In past posts I've mentioned how much I enjoy collecting Montenegro and consider him to be an inventive composer-arranger. Montenegro manages to, somehow, to blend the folk quality of Dylan's sound with orchestral and choral swells, easy listening and light pop to create engaging tracks. No one track is exactly like another which helps hold interest. For example, on the sample track I've selected, the artist who sings the fantastic solo segment (towards the end of the tune) only appears on this tune. No, contributing artists are credited on the cover.
