Hope that makes sense.

It took a couple of tries, but then I got it. Thanks Hilts!

I'm reluctant to say this cover version is better than the original as it could be considered heresy by some... but it's pretty good I think-

Tried to modify my post using your explanation hilts but I’ve screwed it all up and lost the links. This tech is beyond me! I’ll get back to guitar practice and reading other peoples posts!

Shawn Colvin released an album called Cover Girl ... of covers.
It is great from start to finish.

I'm a huge fan of Bob Dylan yet dare to suggest this is better:




And this is a less well known song she has covered here - but simply beautiful:

Absolutely, you only need to watch the looks on Jimmy Page and Robert Plant’s faces to appreciate just how good it is - apart from taking time to listen to it of course!

One of my all time favourite covers, maybe better than the original? I think so!

Thanks David, it’s part of my ‘to do’ list which is part of my CBT for my health issues, early days yet but at least I’m now getting some more meaningful treatment!

Take a great poet, get a great band to cover his song and you have something special.
I never understood why this wasn't more popular

Some songs seem to be covered by everybody.

















I could literally go on for pages.

Hey Brian, some great tunes in this thread, thought i'd have a crack.
.
Now I love Bob Dylan, I'm a big fan so this isn't easy.  But I'm a big enough fan to know that Bob was a better song writer than singer/performer.   Anyway, check this out.    This aired on my favorite tv show Rock Wizz.  The guy singing is Cal something or other from an Aussie band called Eskimo Joe.  The rest of the musicians are the house band, except the fiddle player, and play her fiddle she does. (you're welcome)
.
This is the story of the Hurricane.  Check it out
