12 good Bob Dylan covers done by some incredible women
We like cover versions here at alldylan.com, and here are some really great examples. They are not better than the originals, but they are different and they are good.
P J Harvey – Shot of Love:
December 1999, Music Of The Millennium Awards, Channel 4. Polly chose Bob Dylan as her Musician of the Millennium and performed this tribute.
They say ev’rything can be replaced
Yet ev’ry distance is not near
So I remember ev’ry face
Of ev’ry man who put me here
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released
31 March 1995
A great list published back in April 2009.
I thought it might be a good idea to share this list & embed audio/video from youtube.
As it is a rather long list… I plan to split it up into 5 separate posts… this is part 1.
50. Cowboy Junkies – “If You Gotta Go, Go Now”
John Cale, Nick Cave and Chrissie Hynde Songwriters Circle 1999
Recorded live for the “Songwriters Circle” program at the Subterania Club, London UK, May 12, 1999. Broadcasted by the BBC september 7, 1999.
The concept of this programme was having 3 singer songwriters meeting up only 1 hour before and to come up with a 1 hour acoustic set for filming.
Good songs, great writers and very fine performances!
