    I love Dylan, and I think there are some Dylan covers that are better than his originals (Hendrix Watchtower, Byrd's Tambourine ), but I'm of the opinion that for the most part only Dylan can really sing Dylan.

    The ideas and words of his songs (especially after 63) can be so obscure, I feel like he is the only one that can sing them with any true authority.

    Basically GE Smith, Booker T. & the MG's w/ Jim Keltner on drums.

    That is one helluva band!

    I've covered several Dylan songs, but One more cup of Coffee is my favorite to do.
    Good times.

    Jimi's "Watchtower" annihilates anything else.

    I have a soft spot for the Byrds and Turtles covers, though.
