Is It Rolling Bob? is a two-disc affair, presenting 14 reggaefied versions of Dylan songs on the first disc, with a second bonus DVD of 5.1 Surround mixes, and while nothing is patently awful, the truth is that most of these tracks are more curious than inspiring or memorable. The fact that Jamaica was...

The fact that Jamaica was once essentially an island slave plantation (and given that Toots Hibbert could sing the want ads and make them stick) gives "Maggie's Farm" an added poignancy here, while "Mr. Tambourine Man" makes an amazingly fluid transition to reggae in the hands of the great Gregory Isaacs, but tracks like "Lay Lady Lay" by the Mighty Diamonds mostly just sound strange, even slightly off-kilter. For the casual listener, these versions will simply be mildly interesting curios.
