YouTube is a goldmine for finding Dylan Covers that haven't been released on formats like vinyl, CD or DVD. We also discovered many uploads of tribute shows. Especially recordings of the events that were held at the end of May to celebrate Dylan's 75th birthday. We thought it would be a nice idea to collect these from YouTube and bring 'm all together as a bunch on this page. Of course - like all of the items on this website - it is not complete. If you search YouTube you'll easily find a dozen more that fit in.
Please do! It helps a great deal if you would mail us with suggestions.
