“If I’ve got any kind of attitude about me — or about what I do, what I perform, what I sing, on any level, my attitude is, compare it to somebody else! Don’t compare it to me. Are you going to compare Neil Young to Neil Young? Compare it to somebody else, compare it to Beck—which I like—or whoever else is on his level.
~Bob Dylan (to Jonathan Lethem, Aug 2006)

Beck turns 48 today – Happy Birthday.

Here are two Dylan songs he’s covered: Leopard Skin Pill-box Hat & Country Pie.

Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat (originally from Bob Dylan’s 1966 album Blonde on Blonde)

Country Pie (originally from Bob Dylan’s 1969 album Nashville Skyline)

Here from “Beck & Dava” (unreleased recording from ~1990)

There is also a real bad cover version of “Tell Me it isn’t True” on this bootleg:
(I wasn’t planning on including this one.. but what the heck)
