Well this is pretty special; and it's an album that in anyone else's hands would have been nothing short of audacious, and almost definitely ill advised. Cat Power sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert documents Chan Marshall's faithful and emotive song-for-song live recreation of the iconic and controversial Bob Dylan show that saw the folk hero "go electric". Recorded last November at the Royal Albert Hall itself (despite it later being discovered that the 1966 concert was actually recorded in Manchester!), the tracks released so far are as sumptuous as you'd hope, and we can't wait for the rest. Judas! - Flying Out

Last November in London, Cat Power took the stage at Royal Albert Hall and delivered a song-for-song recreation of one of the most fabled and transformative live sets of all time.

Held at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in May 1966—but long known as the “Royal Albert Hall Concert” due to a mislabeled bootleg—the original performance saw Bob Dylan switching from acoustic to electric midway through the show, drawing ire from an audience of folk purists and forever altering the course of rock-and-roll. In her own rendition of that historic night, the artist otherwise known as Chan Marshall inhabited each song with equal parts conviction and grace and a palpable sense of protectiveness, ultimately transposing the anarchic tension of Dylan’s set with a warm and luminous joy.

Now captured on the live album Cat Power Sings Dylan: The 1966 Royal Albert Hall Concert, Marshall’s spellbinding performance both lovingly honours her hero’s imprint on history and brings a stunning new vitality to many of his most revered songs.
