    It's a huge part of my life to have been deeply involved with Bob Dylan's music from 1965 on, when I was 15. It was during that huge creative flood that went from his first album in 1962 to Blonde on Blonde, just 4 years. These are the only covers I feel any connection with:





    They both came out in what seemed Bob's endless silence between Blonde on Blonde and John Wesley Harding. In the pre-internet UK any news of what he was up to was pretty hard to come by, so these hints of the Basement Tapes were important and searched endlessly in sixth form common rooms for clues. I hardly slept for a week before John Wesley Harding came out.

    The effect has diminished, but there aren't many of his albums that don't take me back to what was happening in my life at the time. No covers can compete with that!

    But I totally agree with the point that his songs are eminently coverable abd I love 'em all really - blimey, I learnt guitar from the big black covered Bob Dylan Songbook.

    Best Dylan cover is Mr. Tambourine man by the Byrds, IMO. Stunning, electrified 12-string guitar based rendition.
