See all reviews for this album
I came across this album by chance. I was surfing the interweb and was listening to different versions of "To Ramona", the Dylan classic and up popped DG's cover. I found it a totally different take on a great song and I simply loved it. I downloaded the album and was amazed to see so many classics covered brilliantly. DG manages to put his own point through on each song while maintaining the original's feeling. Normally covers are either identical to the original or so different you don't recognise it is a cover.
"I Think It's Going To Rain Today" is a truly beautiful song and DG's version in my opinion has a lot more feeling and sense of hopelessness than the original by Newman.
I could go on and on, but you get the drift.... A great album.
(p.s. I really want to buy it on CD but can't find it anywhere - where can i get a copy??)
