Doghouse Records proudly presents Paupers, Peasants, Princes & Kings: The Songs Of Bob Dylan, a collection of some of Dylan's most adored and beloved classics reworked, retuned and rejuvenated by some of today's most adored and beloved bands. Each band involvedÑfrom established acts like Gatsby's American Dream, Apollo Sunshine and Say Anything featuring Saves The Day's Chris Conley, to newcomers like Rachel Cantu, the Casual Lean and Down To Earth ApproachÑhad complete freedom and unconditional support when choosing which Dylan song to recreate and how to make it their own. From the hip-hop coolness of P.O.S.'s version of "All Along The Watchtower" to the schizophrenic cacophony of "I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Met)" by Panama Jerk, Paupers, Peasants, Princes & Kings is as diverse and unique as Dylan, himself. Each band adds their own personality to the song they chose to cover, making every track a highlight. The Honorary Title's acoustic homage! to "A Simple Twist Of Fate," features vocals so tender and true to the original, Dylan might want to issue a paternity test for lead singer Jarrod Gorbel. "If Not For You," interpreted by Boston noise-core band Read Yellow might not be immediately recognizable to the version first heard on New Morning, but it's imagination and offbeat instrumentation surge new life into an otherwise mellow and meditative track. And Limbeck's laid-back approach to "Tonight, I'll Be Staying Here With You" is an alt-country infused celebration of life, love and Dylan!
