12 more Bob Dylan covers done by some incredible women
We like cover versions here at JV, and here are some more good examples. They are not better than the originals, but they are different and they are good. …and before you kill me in the commentaries, listen to Miley Cyrus’ effort, it is surprisingly good!
We got mail, comments and facebook messages about who should have been included in PART 1, we just had to do a second post on this wonderful subject. It is great fun to dig into this matter once again.
To do a cover version is sign of appreciation, the artists show their love of other peoples creation. We try to find interpretations that add to the experience of the song, versions that are not too similar to the originals. We also trust our emminent taste when it comes to picking the renditions that we present here.
