‘Chimes Of Freedom’ is a collection of Bob Dylan covers with wildly varying interpretations across many genres. Raphael Saadiq, K’NAAN, Queens Of The Stone Age and Mariachi El Bronx are just a few names among more than 80 artists contributing to the compilation that’ll set you back a mere 25 buck for the physical 4-disc copy or less than 20 bucks for the download. The great part about it is that those hard-earned bucks while go directly towards actually chiming in for freedom as the project is released to commemmorate 50 years of Amnesty International, and proceeds will of course go to the human rights organization. You can check out 1-minute snippets of the songs in the player right here or go to Spotify and check out the compilation in full before buying. You can buy it digitally through there, Amazon or iTunes. So, if you still feel the need to pirate this, welcome to Turdsville, population: you. Everybody else, you got a nice compilation (not all songs will probably be your cup of tea, but you can buy them separately too. It’ll probably be easier on the wallet to just get the whole bunch if you’re in for more than 20 tracks though) and contributed to an admirable charity to boot.

More on the project here.



1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
