Subject: RE: The Bob Dylan Mystique
Whistle Stop,

No arguments here. A singer has to convey the emotions of a song, make you feel them. I have a hard time with Pop music for this reason, often the "pretty" voices lose the feel of the song. I have heard very few covers of Dylan songs that were as good as the original. Give me Bob, Willie, Ray Charles, Robert Johnson, Son House any day.
