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 did a fine version of Things We Said Today:
Bob Dylan and George Harrison got together 1st of May in 1970 in New York city while both were busy on solo projects. Bob Dylan released two albums that year, Self Portrait and New Morning, and George Harrison was working on On Things Must Pass. It’s hard to say exactly what these sessions are. Some songs wound up on both of their LP’s, they recorded a Paul McCartney tune…
Bob Dylan with George Harrison – Yesterday:
He has also played The Long And Winding Road once on July 15, 1978, Camberley, England. It is available at Roio, I think it has Jo Ann Harris on vocals but I’m not sure. (Roio)
