What Dylan Sounds Like On Film

It is now possible to imagine what it might sound like to watch Todd Haynes's highly anticipated Bob Dylan biopic, "I'm Not There." Vinyl Fever leaked the list, an the tireless folks at The Playlist continue to put the pieces together.

Artists include Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard & Markta Irglov of "Once" fame, Tom Verlaine, Sonic Youth, Antony and the Johnsons, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Yo La Tengo, Stephen Malkmus and Dylan himself. The 34-track soundtrack, however, does not include "Visions of Johanna" in any form, giving me cause to question whether Haynes does, in fact, know what he's doing.

The two house-bands seem to be Calexico and "The Million Dollar Bashers, which The Playlist says consists of Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and drummer Steve Shelley, Dylan bass player Tony Garnier, keyboardist John Medeski, Tom Verlaine and guitarists Smokey Hormel (Beck, Smokey & Miho) and Nels Cline (Wilco).

The full list:

All Along The Watchtower --Eddie Vedder & The Million Dollar Bashers

Not a bad lineup. There are some folks I wish were on there and some that probably don't deserve to appear, but the one that makes me shake my head most is Jack Johnson. Come on.
