Dylan Musicares Tribute For DVD


Billboard reports that Bob Dylan has approved a DVD release of the February 6 MusiCares Person of the Year concert footage that included performances by Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young Alanis Morissette and Jack White.

Recent editions of the Grammy Foundation’s annual tribute have made their way to DVD — notably Neil Young, Springsteen and Paul McCartney — but reports Billboard reports that rights and other issues have kept about 20 of the events in the vaults.

Apparently, Dylan ‘personally matched’ performers with songs for his tribute. Billboard says that it is unclear whether Dylan’s much talked-about 35-minute speech will be part of the package.

The songs performed at the Musicares ceremony were:

Beck – ‘Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat’
Aaron Neville – ‘Shooting Star’
Alanis Morissette – ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’
Los Lobo – ‘On A Night Like This’
Willie Nelson – ‘Señor (Tales Of Yankee Power)’
Jackson Browne – ‘Blind Willie McTell’
John Mellencamp – ‘Highway 61 Revisited’
Jack White – ‘One More Cup Of Coffee’
Tom Jones – ‘What Good Am I?’
Norah Jones – ‘I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight’
Dereck Trucks And Susan Tedeschi – ‘Million Miles’
John Doe – ‘Pressing On’
Crosby, Stills & Nash – ‘Girl From The North County’
Bonnie Raitt – ‘Standing In The Doorway’
Sheryl Crow – ‘Boots Of Spanish Leather’
Bruce Springsteen – ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’
Neil Young – ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’
