Never heard of this album. I just loaded it into my MOG queue. I'll listen to it later today. Thanks for the heads up.

I love this cd and have recommended it many times here and on other music sites. This cd has turned me on to a few really good folk artists, Greg Brown in particular. Since you enjoyed this cd I would recommend These Times We're Living In, which is another compilation disc on the Redhouse label.
Unfortnately, A Nod To Bob Two, recorded to celebrate Bob's 70th birthday is not as good.
Nod to Bob is a great compilation. My favourite track is "Boots of Spanish leather" by Martin Simpson, a truly great British folk singer and even better guitarist, who is'nt known in the US as well as he should be.
I like the idea of an album devoted to one singer or songwriter, by different artists. Some are'nt so great and I would put "We all Love Ella" in that group, though you may like it. Another great one is Herbie Hancock the "Joni Letters", or the river as it is also listed.
Hey Hifimaniac I have a tribute to Jimmy Rodgers cd you may like. Jerry Garcia with Grisman, Dickey Betts, Bono, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison just to name some. Good recording also. Timrhu I was looking at my local record shop and found YES A GREG BROWN TRIBUTE go figure. I had to buy it out of curiosity. It is all female artist. Got it used and can return it if I don't like it. I will give feedback. Best
Ok, so if we're talking tribute albums now, here's one of my new favorites, Tower Of Song: Songs Of Leonard Cohen. There's a cut by Tori Amos that's worth the price of the cd. Another fantastic song is by Billy Joel that blows me away, and I have never really cared for Billy Joel. Some other great performances also.
Timrhu I am truly enjoying both Greg Brown cds. I cannot believe that I never knew of him before due to how good he is as an artist. Next cd for me is Covenant. Oh yea wife likes him too. Also I initial take after one listen to Greg Brown tribute is good but need a couple more for a real evaluation. Best
