Positively 12th & K: A Bob Dylan Tribute

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
On two separate nights in August 2002 and January 2003, several singer/songwriters and musicians in the local scene gathered at Marilyn's on 12th & K Streets in Sacramento, CA to pay tribute to Bob Dylan. Highlights from those two evenings are assembled on this 13-song CD, Positively 12th and K: A Bob Dylan Tribute which, though billed to Jackie Greene/Sal Valentino & Friends, is more of a various-artists compilation. Beau Brummels fans should note that Valentino sings lead on just four of the tracks; singer/songwriter Greene takes lead on four others, with the Jackie Greene Band serving as the backing group for nine of the cuts.

Beau Brummels fans should note that Valentino sings lead on just four of the tracks; singer/songwriter Greene takes lead on four others, with the Jackie Greene Band serving as the backing group for nine of the cuts. Lesser-known singers Mick Martin, Sherman Baker, Lew Fratis, and Billy Harper, Jr. serve as the vocal frontmen on the remainder of the program. These are good musicians doing energetic, straightforward covers of an assortment of Dylan tunes both celebrated ("Subterranean Homesick Blues," "Isis," "It's All over Now, Baby Blue," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," "All Along the Watchtower," "I Shall Be Released") and more obscure ("Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?," "Not Dark Yet," "Everything Is Broken"). It sounds like everyone on-stage and in the audience had a jovial time, but as an audio document, it's less exciting than it must have been to be there, for obvious reasons. The existence of not just the more exciting Bob Dylan originals, but also many other more exciting and imaginative Dylan covers over the preceding 40 years, doesn't put this high on the list for those seeking interesting or novel reworkings of the Dylan canon. ~ Richie UnterbergerÌÞ°
