Thread Name: Favourite covers of Dylan songs
Subject: RE: Favourite covers of Dylan songs
Peter T: well said!! I agree with much of that.

artists can be assholes, can't they?

Pseudolus: since we are all helpless regarding his Holiness, I agree, there are bigger fish to fry.

now, about that compilation: isn't there one already out there somewhere?

Can you imagine one the same size and scope of "Biograph" but with all covers/???

I had the pleasure of attending a couple of lectures by BU professor Christopher Ricks on Dylan; he is considered a Dylan "scholar"(also an expert on Eliot and Beckett) and hearing him discuss lyrics like "Baby please stop crying" in his clipped British accent is oddly exhilirating...
