Barb Jungr - Man in the Long Black Coat - Record Collector

Barb Jungr has a new album devoted to the songs of Bob Dylan, Man In The Long Black Coat, celebrating Dylan's 70th birthday. A sympathetic and innovative interpreter of Dylan's work - principally because her own voice and delivery is unique - the CD includes four regular live tracks: Sara, Man In The Long Black Coat, It Ain't Me Babe and With God On Our Side, which appears on a Jungr CD for the first time.

Approaching the songs as if they were all her own, the likes of Just Like A Woman is given a reggae / funk crossover, while those of a softer disposition may be drawn to a collection of Dylan songs that don't actually sound like Dylan songs.
