Ray talked with us in Episode 03 about the cover songs made from Time Out Of Mind. He runs the Cover.Me website which reviews and discusses all kinds of cover song performances, and he's published two earlier books, one Cover Me that take a deep dive into twenty of the most iconic cover songs in history (including All Along The Watchtower and Make You Feel My Love), and a 33 1/3 book on Leonard Cohen's tribute album called I'm Your Fan.

Ray also runs a must-have Dylan email newsletter called Flagging Down The Double E’s. The newsletter does deep dives into legendary Dylan live shows, and has published some of the musician interviews that will be included in Pledging My Time.
