  1. Thank you for the Dylan!

    I stood in a long line to buy ‘Blood on the Tracks’ when I was fifteen and since cannot get enough Dylan (or inspired covers).

    Elvis may have been King but that would make Dylan the Messiah.

  2. Great show – immediately afterwards I listened to Richie Havens’ cover of Just Like a Woman – very special. Speaking of which – he is a superb cover artist in my opinion, perhaps the theme for a future show…

  3. Robyn Hitchcock did a full double-CD of Bob Dylan covers a few years back. It was called “Robyn Sings” and consisted of various live, mostly acoustic performances of his favorite Dylan songs. I never appreciated how much Dylan influenced Robyn’s writing (particularly lyrically) until I listened to this record.
