Dylan Covered - All I Really Want to Do
So here it is - the new series I threatened in my recent Byrds post and not nearly as original as the suggestions in the column box
The fact that there are about half a dozen Dylan songs on The Byrds Definitive Collection gave me the idea.
And let's face it given that he is probably the most covered artist in the world (or maybe second after The Beatles) there should by plenty to choose from
The idea is to compare and contrast the cover with the original
The default position is that Bob will invariably be better but there may be exceptions.
You of course my free to take issue with my pontifications.
It's only proper that we start with The Byrds
Verdict - in this instance the Nobel Prize winner is the winner yet again
Bob Dylan - All I Really Want to Do
