    I'm not sure if Dylan ever officially released either of these songs. Absolutely great lyrics and performances

    I like the Johnny Winter cover of, “From a Buick 6”.

    Kelly Flint and Dave’s True Story did a Dylan album, all good. Here’s one:

    Nobody does Dylan better than Bob himself.

    No claim to best here, but this is the Dylan cover I enjoyed most. My old band covered several Dylan tunes. I convinced them we should try Maggie's Farm, but a little funkier. IMO, it worked:

    So I sampled many of these and with the exception of Hendrix's All Along the Watch Tower and his previously unmentioned live version of Like a Rolling Stone and of course, the Byrds Mr. Tambourine Man, I like Dylan's versions better. Never thought I'd say that. And for the record (pun intended) if Dylan had only recorded Blood on the Tracks or Blonde on Blonde, he'd still be one of the greatest ever.

    One of my all time favorite albums: Rick is at the top of his game, and his band is fantastic (including pre-Eagles Randy Meisner on bass & high harmonies and post-Buck Owens Tom Brumley on pedal steel). And 3 of the 12 tracks are Dylan covers: an excellent She Belongs to Me, a nice rocking If You Gotta Go, and my favorite version of I Shall Be Released. Enjoy...

    Here's two covers of the same song. I just can't decide which one I like best, so I leave it to you.
