This is a curious addition to the burgeoning [[Bob Dylan]] canon: 47 years ago the great troubadour wrote some lyrics which he never got around to writing tunes for. In recent times he passed these on to ubiquitous producer and man-about-town [[T Bone Burnett]] and gently enquired if he could find a use for them. T Bone rounded up Elvis Costello, [[Marcus Mumford]], [[Jim James]] of New Morning Jacket, [[Rhiannon Giddens]] (of Carolina Chocolate Drops) and [[Taylor Goldsmith]] (of Dawes) and asked them to write the missing music and provide the absent vocals. Highlights include the full Jim James guitar and vocal treatment on [[Down On The Bottom|Down on the Bottom]]; an inspired Costello on [[Married To My Hack|Married to My Hack]]; a lovely vocal from Giddens that gilds [[Spanish Mary]]; and a very decent turn from Mumford on [[Kansas City]]. There are two takes on title track Lost on the River. The first is by Costello, who wrote the music and gives it his all. The second is sung by Giddens, who trumps that. Not a Dylan album, really, but enormously rewarding.
