Compilation of Bob Dylan Songs Released to Support Amnesty International

A 4 CD compilation of re-worked Bob Dylan songs (about 80 songs!!) by various artists has been released to honor 50 years of Amnesty International.

Called "Chimes of Freedom", this album will support Amnesty International's cause; and what better to do it with some Bob Dylan songs?! He was perhaps one of the best known protest songwriters.

Some the artists on the album include: Miley Cyrus, Adele, Kesha, My Chemical Romance, The Gaslight Anthem, Pete Townshend, Seal, Jeff Beck, Elvis Costello, Mark Knopfler, Darren Criss, Eric Burdon, Sting, Patti Smith, My Morning Jacket Pete Seeger, Dave Mathews Band, Tom Morello and others.

See the official announcement [here] and the liner notes [here].

Thanks to my man and guitar extraordinaire Aziz for the tip.
