Weekend Rock Question: What Is the Best Bob Dylan Cover?
Bob Dylan may have turned 75 last month, but he’s hardly slowing down. His Never Ending Tour picks up this week with a pair of shows in Woodinville, Washington and he’ll be on the road steadily through mid-July, and then back again in October for Desert Trip (a.k.a. Oldchella) where he’ll share the stage with the Rolling Stones, the Who, Neil Young, Roger Waters and Paul McCartney. There’s also his new standards album Fallen Angels.
Now we have a question for you: What is the best Bob Dylan cover? (You can consult our recent list of 75 great ones for inspiration.) Feel free vote for a big hit like Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along The Watchtower” and the Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man,” something a little less well-known like Jim James’ “Goin’ to Acapulco” and the Band’s “Blind Willie McTell” or even overlooked gems like Johnny Rivers’ “Positively 4th Street” and Roberta Flack’s “Just Like a Woman.” Anything counts as long as its a Bob Dylan song sung by somebody other than the man himself. Just please only vote once and only for a single selection.
