    Bob Dylan is a truly American artist, and any look at his musical roots reveals a virtual history of American music, from folk, blues, and country to R&B, gospel, and early rock & roll. This four-disc set (three CDs and a DVD) collects a little bit from all of these genres, and includes classic tracks from the likes of Leadbelly, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Bukka White, Merle Travis, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, and so many more. Dylan fans will easily see where he borrowed and reconfigured, but this set is a fascinating collection on its own even without the Dylan connection. The DVD disc features interviews with Joe Boyd, Sid Griffin, and others. ~ Steve Leggett
