The Dylan legacy lives on, although bent out of shape somewhat. Jakob has never used the surname to his advantage, and has ploughed his own furrow so that his harvest is a rich one, but a different crop to that of his father's. Aided and abetted by his fellow Wallflowers (Rami Jaffee in particular, whose keyboard role has been a constant throughout their career) he has produced a superb range of, shall we say, alt country music since the early nineties. It would have been foolish, even suicidal, to have attempted to emulate the great man that his father is (in popular music terms , and this cd compilation shows his own range, his own ideas, his own gift, more than any other I have listened to. It is a condensed platter, a cherry picking of tracks that come together to form a conducive whole. I rarely get involved with compilations that distil the artist's best work as they usually have a hollow ring to them, but somehow this set of tunes melds. It's sixteen tracks covering the whole Wallflowers' canon, and not one track disappoints.
Jakob has more recently released a solo album called 'Seeing Things', and although I prefer delving into the past these 'musical' days, I bought it having procured this to add to my copies of Wallflowers albums, and it is a fine thing indeed.
So, you may baulk a little at some of his dad's recent produce as I do, but 'the lad' has found his market niche, and it's definitely more M&S than Pound Shop. Yes, it is QTS - quality to savour.

Great, dependable music! Have loved their first album since I first heard it in a CD store in Fresno back in the late 90s. Bought this CD just so's I could have a snapshot of their albums for the car. Brilliant!

With a name like Dylan, the temptation to compare is always there, but young Yakob is his own man and with his own voice and his own way with words.

Unlike the title foisted on his father - "voice of a generation" - he is a voice in his generation and speaks very clearly amid the other noises that often are promoted as music.

Very easy on the ear and very interesting take on life from behind his eyes.
His solo albums are likewise very good and share the poet's look at the world around him.
