I'm Not There Soundtrack

Details about the soundtrack to the forthcoming, Dylan-approved bio pic, I'm Not There (you know, the one starring 7 different Dylans, one being Cate Blanchett), were released yesterday and my only reaction is "Holy Shit." The soundtrack reads as a whose who of indie rock covering the Bard himself. I hate to take it at face value but this could end up being one of the greatest film soundtracks ever. It sure looks that way on paper. Jeff Tweedy covers "Simple Twist of Fate" ('Nuff Said). Hearing Jim James high lonesome voice on The Basement Tape gem "Goin' to Acapulco" is also sure to be a highlight.Tracklist for the 2-disc set below, as well as a choice Cat Power cover of "Knocking on Heavens Door" and Tweedy playing "John Wesley Harding." The Cat Power recording is from the "Speaking for Trees" DVD, which features Chan Marshall "performing solo outdoors in the countryside amidst the ambient sounds of nature." Also catch a sneak peak into a scene where Cate Blanchett's Dylan meets David Cross' Ginsberg. Big moment.

Cat Power- Knocking on Heavens Door
Jeff Tweedy- John Wesley Harding
