Jakob Dylan called in some impressive collaborators to help with his new "Women and Country" album that's coming out next month, at the top of the list being producer extraordinaire T Bone Burnett and singer-songwriter Neko Case, the latter of whom serves as his vocal foil on several of the songs. But it's entirely possible the whole project never would have existed if not for Glen Campbell. The Campbell connection came up earlier this year when Dylan went to visit Burnett, a longtime Dylan family friend, at work in the studio with another artist.

Jakob Dylan "Women and Country" (Columbia Records) 1/2 The son of a legend, Jakob Dylan would seemingly have all the cred one could need. But after five albums with the modern rock outfit the Wallflowers, each with a declining chart impact, and one rather quiet solo acoustic effort with 2008's "Seeing Things," a creative and career revitalization is in order. Teaming with alt-country scorchers Neko Case and Kelly Hogan certainly can't hurt the effort. Add a former collaborator and veteran producer in T Bone Burnett, and the resulting "Women and Country" is as rootsy and elegant as all the aforementioned résumés would foretell.

For three decades, promising young singer-songwriters have tried to shake the mantle of "the next Dylan" before the weight of the honor and the expectations it brings with it stopped them in their tracks. Jakob Dylan, the youngest son of Bob Dylan, might do well to cloak himself in his father's legend, however, since his modest (albeit generally agreeable) talent is unlikely to take him far on its own.

With both Wallflowers albums, especially the breakthrough 4.1-million-selling 1996 set, "Bringing Down the Horse," fans have combed through the lyrics looking for juicy lines relating to leader Jakob Dylan's life. Dylan expects it to happen again with the band's third album, "Breach," which has just been completed and is due in September. This time, though, there's a difference. People looking for clues will actually find some.

Jakob DYLAN has been waiting for this moment. He has four sons, and the older two are inching toward their teenage years. Over a lunch of black coffee in the Hollywood foothills the other day, he said he's made plans to become a stage dad, the best and most fervent that there ever was. He's going to enroll those boys in every arm of the performing arts he can think of, he said -- dancing and singing, instrumentation and songwriting.

What was one of the most dramatic rock success stories of the '90s doing on stage at the 975-seat Ventura Theatre on Wednesday, instead of a larger, more high-profile venue in Los Angeles? Being smart.

In keeping with the organization's eco-friendly principles, chandeliers made from the bottoms of plastic bottles flowers fashioned from recycled plastic bags topped centerpieces. "This is where we belong," said Luann Laval Williams, adding that she was glad to have good weather for the elegant beach gala. Williams received an award that night, along with Jack Baylis and the Walt Disney Co. for their environmental leadership and dedication.

Like a rolling stone, singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan -- he of the famous daddy -- may be moving on. The 39-year-old son-of-the-great-one -- who isn't exactly a slouch in the music world himself -- has listed his classic Brentwood Park Spanish estate at $11 million. The main house has been extensively restored and expanded and includes five bedrooms upstairs, one of them the master suite. There is a two-story guesthouse and a second guesthouse that is currently used as a recording studio.

Jakob Dylan was so guarded about his family history when he formed the Wallflowers in 1990 that he went six years before mentioning the word "dad" in an interview. It's a sign of how much the times have changed in Dylan's world that now--5 million album sales later--Jakob refers to his famous father, Bob Dylan, within the first seven minutes of an interview about his band's new album.

The handsome young singer-songwriter with the Wallflowers, whose video of the song "6th Avenue Heartache" is a buzz clip on MTV these days, enjoys talking about his musical heroes. Sitting at a sidewalk table in front of a Hollywood coffeehouse, he digresses at several points during an interview to speak at length about influences ranging from Solomon Burke and Tom Petty to Charlie Rich and the Clash.
