Bob Dylan’s Planet Waves covered
I love this album, and I think there are many wonderful songs on it. Every time I play it the lesser known songs (if that can be said about a Bob Dylan album) really amazes me.
The originals are better, I agree, but I love to hear what other artists can do with such great material.
It is hard to find good cover versions of songs that are so dear to you, and sometimes you just can not find a decent one. This time I couldn’t find a good cover of Never Say Goodbye so please help me if you know of one.
My favorites here are Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia Band, Norah Jones and John Doe with Lucy Schwartz
