    Thea Gilmore's take on John Wesley Harding is a worthy tribute to that great album--and with a playing time of 42.23, it even gives you an extra four minutes more than the original.

    Thea Gilmore's 70th birthday tribute takes the form of re-recording her favourite Dylan album in its entirety, triggered by her acclaimed 2002 cover of "I Dreamed I Saw St Augustine", which sustains its solemnity despite the inclusion of congas.

    Without in any way overwhelming the simple beauty of the lyrics and melodies, Gilmore's vocals and still-understated instrumentation add emotional color to Dylan's songs. Like all worthwhile covers, Gilmore's take on these classics lets us experience the songs anew.
