Bettye Sings Bob (Dylan)

Bettye LaVette has an uncanny ability to squeeze every ounce of emotion out of a song with her voice. On her latest album Things Have Changed Bettye applies that talent to the music of Bob Dylan. Bettye relays the story of the time she met (read: was kissed by) Bob Dylan, and her thoughts on Dylan's own vocal delivery. She also delves into the ups and downs of her own career, from the frustration of struggling through failed record deals while many of her contemporaries got rich, to Bettye's gratitude for the renewed interest people have in her as an artist now.
