The Songs of Bob Dylan, Vol. 2: May Your Song Always Be Sung

Odetta's sparse and funky acoustic take on "Paths of Victory" is also compelling, as is Kiko Veneno's version of "Memphis Blues Again," which recasts the song as a flamenco blues. The Vacels, a vocal group who had a minor hit with "You're My Baby" on Kama Sutra Records in 1965, appear here with another recording from that year, the first known version of Dylan's "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window," which has a wonderful garage-folk feel, complete with horns.
