Bob Dylan covers Paul McCartney

“They were fantastic singers. Lennon, to this day, it’s hard to find a better singer than Lennon was, or than McCartney was and still is.

I mean I’m in awe of McCartney. He’s about the only one that I am in awe of. But I’m in awe of him. He can do it all and he’s never let up, you know. He’s got the gift for melody, he’s got the rhythm. He can play any instrument. He can scream and shout as good as anybody and he can sing the ballad as good as anybody, you know so… And his melodies are, you know, effortless. That’s what you have to be in awe… I’m in awe of him maybe just because he’s just so damn effortless. I mean I just wish he’d quit, you know. [laughs] Just everything and anything that comes out of his mouth is just framed in a melody, you know …”
– Bob Dylan (Rolling Stone Magazine)

Bob Dylan’s Street-Legal covered

Bob Dylan’s Street-Legal covered

Street-Legal is the eighteenth studio album by Bob Dylan, released on June 15, 1978 by Columbia Records. The album was a serious musical departure for Dylan, who uses a large pop-rock band—complete with female backing vocalists—for the first time. Not his most critically acclaimed album, but I know a lot of people who loves it dearly.

The originals are better, I agree, but I love to hear what other artists can do with such great material.

 

My favorites are Ian Hunter, Patti Smith and Jerry Garcia.
