  1. A couple of Bob Dylan tracks pop up today on compilations: “The Lost Notebooks Of Hank Williams” features Bob performing “The Love That Faded” (his first studio recording since the 2009 Xmas album), while “Hawaii Five-O: Original Songs From The Television Series” contains a previously unreleased 1981 “Shot Of Love” outtake entitled “Don’t Ever Take Yourself Away.”

  2. How many more times can they re-re-re-release “A Jolly Christmas”?
