    Way back when Lee Michael's played the Fillmore in SF. He did a cover of Maggie's Farm that I wish I could find a recording of. That powerful organ and Michael's killin it vocally. Frosty was right there too !!!

    Once when I saw the Dead, someone in the crew had lost a child, and Jerry sang a truly heartwrenching "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"

    Jeff Tweedy - Simple Twist of Fate
    John Doe - Pressing On

    This one's really got the mojo ...

    I'm just rehearsing Buckets of Rain with my singing partner, doing it in D, female singer and guitar player, me on resonator playing slide parts. The songs just...work, in a whole variety of arrangements. I'm gonna disagree with a poster above and say Dylan tunes are about the most coverable songs out there.

    Haven't seen this one come up yet. This version was actually the first time I heard the song itself.



    Also, are we counting Dylan-penned/adjacent?
