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.

  1. It’s nice to see these live, since Dylan hasn’t performed them since 1978 (except Senor).

  2. Yup, one of my favorites that I keep coming back to. I find a good part of it simply astonishing in it’s depth, lyricism, and musicality.

  3. Always liked Street Legal especially when it was remixed in 1999. these cover versions bring out the strong melodic qualities of many of the songs (something which tends to get overlooked when discussing Dylan). Really liked Baby Stop Crying here.
