Dylan Covered - I Dreamed I Saw Saint Augustine
Lounge Lizards of the world rejoice! A resounding victory last week for Bryan Ferry with his version of A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall.
Perhaps it is merely putting off the inevitable but the scores are now Bob 8 Cover Artist 6.
Can this week's candidate Thea Gilmore narrow the gap still further?
It is I Dreamed I Saw Saint Augustine times two and indeed John Wesley Harding times two given that Thea covered the entire album in 2011. I thought she was Irish but it turns out she is English
You will be pleased to know that among other things St Augustine is the patron saint of brewers.
It's Bob for me this week. His version is terrific and a fine example of less is more.. Feel free to disagree if only to prolong the series
