Does anyone know if Sinead O'Connor ever recorded her version of "Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat"? It was supposed to be the best ever.

yours, Peter T.

Mikey Joe,

I had forgotten Richie Havens contribution, but yes, that was a wonderful version of Just Like a Woman.

Bob (like Cohen) is blessed with interpreters who find the tune in what appears to be tunelessness, and you go back and discover how great the original is. My current faves:
Judy Collins, "Dark Eyes" from her Dylan album which also contains a dreadful version of "Just Like A Woman".

Joan Baez, "Love Is Just A Four Letter Word"

John Lennon, "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" (joke).

yours, Peter T.

From that concert. Ritchie Havens 'Just Like a Woman' is pretty incredible. Also Mr. Young gives Tom Thumb a good going over. Some really good stuff on that CD actually

George Harrison does an excellent cover of "If Not For You" on All Things Must Pass. I like it better than the original...although on the Bootleg Vol.1 there's a recording of them playing it together...coolness.

I also ADORE former Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness's rockabilly romp through "Don't Think Twice" on his country/rockabilly album Cheating at Solitaire. When Mike sings it, it IS a blow-off song, no bones about it! And he kinda adds a neat little coda to the end which makes it different from all the other covers I have heard.

I also have Irish singer Sinead Lohan doing a GORGEOUS job on "To Ramona". Beautiful. She adds a classical guitar to give it a hint more of the Spanish-y sound.

Come to think of it, U2 does a pretty neat cover of "All Along The Watchtower" themselves.

Tim O'Brien, Red on Blonde - the whole damned album.

Joan Baez, Any Day Now - ditto.

Couple of other bluegrass treatments I like but have to dig around in bad memory sectors for.

Peter.

I was listening to the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert CD this morning and it got me thinking of my favourite covers of Dylan tunes. I really like the Band's version of "When I Paint My Masterpiece" from this CD. Others include Jimi's "All Along The Watchtower", Johnny Winter's "Highway 61 Revisited" and Joe Cocker & Leon Russell's version of "Girl From the North Country" from Mad Dogs & Englishmen.

What are yours?
