Dylan Covered - Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
A fairly comfortable victory for Bob last week over a well received Thea Gilmore with I Dreamed I Saw Saint Augustine.
It looks as though we are now reaching the home straight given that the scores are now Bob 9 Cover Artists 6.
Whereas I agree with Swiss Adam that John Wesley Harding is a fantastic album I couldn't let this series conclude without featuring something from my favourite Dylan album Highway 61 Revisited.
A bit of a poisoned chalice but The Long Ryders have bravely stepped up to the plate with their version of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues. An admiral stab ( © The Swede) by singer Stephen McCarthy (as opposed to Sid Griffin as I originally posted) but let's face it you cannot improve upon perfection.
I doubt any cover of any of the tracks would come remotely close.
In the unlikely event of a Long Ryders victory we shall reconvene next week. Failing that thank you all for your participation. It has been a blast.
