O’s Notes: British vocalist Barb Jungr has a powerful voice. She puts it through the paces on Man in the Long Black Coat, a collection of songs by Bob Dylan. She first sang Dylan’s tunes on her popular 2002 release Every Grain of Sand and has included at least one Dylan song in all CDs since! Barb adds four new Dylan songs to her post 2002 collection in celebration of Bob’s 70th birthday. We enjoyed the funky blues of “Trouble in Mind”, “Sara” and her take on “High Water”. These aren’t just covers but transformations! When she hits it right, Jungr strikes gold.
