The Best Dylan Covers: Norah Jones – I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight

I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight” is a 1967 song by Bob Dylan first released on John Wesley Harding. It was Dylan’s eighth studio album and was released on December 27, 1967 by Columbia Records. Produced by Bob Johnston, the album marked Dylan’s return to acoustic music and traditional roots, after three albums of electric rock music.

Geetali Norah Jones Shankar, widely known as Norah Jones, is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actress. She is a daughter of an American, Sue Jones, and Indian sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar. She has covered several of Bob Dylan’s songs and performed together with him on stage.

Norah Jones’s version was released on a limited edition Greatest Hits collection in 2008. It was also part of the compilation, Covers (2012), and I believe it has been released as a bonus track on a single or EP.

“Every note out of Jones’ mouth feels like a caress, making you believe she will indeed be your baby tonight.”
