* CoverVersion: His version of "[[BobDylan Ring Them Bells]]," done for the ''I'm Not There'' soundtrack. His version of "[[Music/TheBeatles What Goes On]]" for the CoverAlbum ''This Bird Has Flown''. For the ''Dark Was the Night'' charity compilation, he covered labelmate Castanets' "You are the Blood". He also contributed an amazing reinterpretation of "[[JoniMitchell Free Man In Paris]]" for a tribute album that reuses the lyrics of the original but strikes out with a drastic rearrangement of the melody and overall structure of the song.

* LoudnessWar: Almost completely averted. While a couple of songs can reach as low as [=DR5=], this is rare and he hasn't had a major release yet come in at below [=DR8=] overall. ''Carrie & Lowell'' is [=DR10=] even on the CD edition.

** Doubles as a sort of PrecisionFStrike, as this song is the only one on the album (and the first in his catalog up to that point) to make use of the F word.
