Todd Haynes’ Bob Dylan biopic, I’m Not There, finds his Bobness played by six different actors. Five times that number of artists tackle his oeuvre on this 34-song LP, including Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy (”Simple Twist of Fate”) and Antony and the Johnsons (”Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”). The pleasures to be gleaned are straightforward, with most musicians offering rarely radical but frequently great covers. And both Dylan himself and Sonic Youth perform the title track — though not, alas, together.
