    While browsing on this board, I was listening to iTunes. I had just paused it to listen to a video on twitter. Amazingly, when I got off the message board, next song up was "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts" - Baez version

      .. and that my esteemed friend is where we must part company! Baez has an unmatched voice, but for some of our ears, perfect voices make harder listening. (as user4 rushes off to hear the Baez version of LR&JH for the first time)....listening to Baez's version and wow, what a voice !!

        (as if Dylan songs are ever about just one subject)
        Dylan, in his last year in the U80 division, now has his first #1 hit ever.

          That is awesome, you are blessed with a musical skill. They say that he was a tortured soul during that period, .. so you take the greatest folk writer of all time and torture his soul and you get tangled up in blue. That album is probably at the top of my list of 20th century music creations. Is Dylan the George Freidrich Handel of the 20th century. I dont know, Im just asking.

              Not his first commercial, by far:

                As a close follower of Dylan since I first saw him in person in 1963 and have every album and have seen him in person over 25 times: "almost all Dylan covers suck"

                  I'm afraid I am one of the heathens who thinks almost ALL Dylan covers are better than the original. Except 'Lay, Lady, Lay' and 'Like a Rolling Stone' of course.
                  #1 for me (and not even on that list) the Byrds' 'Tamborine Man'

                    • I think Dylan is an incredible poet / songwriter - I absolutely cannot listen to him sing or whatever it is that he is doing that he calls singing

                        Even someone like user4 that loves listening to the mesmerizing vocal sounds of blondeonblonde , bloodonthetracks, and slowtrain can't help but understand and appreciate bambams comment! Nevertheless I totally agree with 1runner1! His sound works for my ears.

                        His greatest attribute to me was that he could tell a great story. From Lily rosemary and the jack of hearts to Isis, he could spin a yarn!!

                          I agree with you. I refer to Jimi Hendrix's version of "All Along the Watchtower" as a complete reinvention, not a cover. When I saw Dylan in the 90s, he performed that version, not his original.

                          One of the few covers I do like is Youssou N'Dour's version of "Chimes of Freedom".

                          If you're not familiar with him, N'Dour is a fascinating part of Senegalese culture.

                            That also describes The Boss to me (with a few exceptions - his I'm on Fire (with video) is sensational, but note that his ONLY #1 song was Mannfred Mann's cover of Blinded By the Light).
                            I do recognize both as geniuses.

                              And I've seen him, and in a track setting! He was the entertainment at the IAF Gala in Monaco in November of '02.

                                Made me look. I see the appeal.
