This one is very special for me. First, i'm so lucky to have Petra singing this duet with me. I'd like to thank her very much for her performance. We also have JodyG playing organ and piano, with his usual class and magic fingers on the ivories...

This song is Jennie Stearns song. Jennie is an independent artist from Ithaca, New-York, she's released many albums and i honestly think she's one of those criminally overlooked singer/songwriters...Her songs and her delivery are something else... We exchanged some messages on myspace, i fell in awe with all her work and especially this song, "You Save Me". I asked her if she'd allow me to make a cover here on Icomp...i added that i'd totally understand if she'd slap my face. She said 'no slap in the face...looking forward hearing your version'.

How COOL is that ? Ladies and gentlemen, if you enjoy this track (no download, i think you'll understand), PLEASE go and check Jennie's work. And buy it. And go see her on stage ! That's my only and modest wish....

Saw this and went for the download button (and then I read the description - and yes, we totally understand). Then I went to Jennie's pages. She's great and just like you described her. So, it's vital that we see what's happened here; An independent covered by independents from around the world, singing in three languages!!! No record companies, no commercials and no interference. Everything that I love about Icomp is here in this track, including the artists.

Stunningly good. It's all very good from the tips of it's toes to the ends of it's hairs. I reckon it's time somebody remarked on the harmonica on the last few songs Dylan. Excellent blow

absolutely superb musicianship!

I have to reiterate what John, aka jkane, says above. The fact that this is done completely independent of a giant label or producer is remarkable. It truly represents an artists ability and desire to make music for the sake of making music and sharing with the entire world because they want to.

Now, as far as the song, simply fantastic, brilliant performance by all three!

You can always count on Dylan to open our ears to amazing songwriters. You can always count him to put his heart and soul in every note he plays and sings. And the accompaniment voice and keys from Petra and Jody just make this all the more special.

Well, now ... There's a thing of beauty ... and Hey! I was just hoping for the thing your harmony vocals did ... aand you did it .. where your low vocal goes to a high vocal while Petra's stays. This is so good. Everything about it hits the spot.

When we like each others' work here at iComps, and then we find something that's the best of the best, it's difficult to find the appropriate superlative. In this case, I am impressed beyond words. There's poetry in the music to match the lyrics.
