An 80th birthday tribute to Dylan: the full concert

By Tony Attwood

Untold reader “AJD” has sent me an email containing a link to a concert of Dylan covers.   Which as you may note is highly relevant since you will have seen, if you have been paying attention, we’ve been running “Dylan Cover the Day” for the past week or so.

And as a result, Andrew has written in to Untold with this note…

“I’m really enjoying the Dylan covers. I thought I’d reach out to let you know of one that is simply an amazing piece of work. My wife and I were floored by this, but I’ll let it speak for itself.”

And having listened to the concert I can see why.

So I thought it would be churlish just to run this as another in the series of Dylan covers – it certainly needs a billing of its own.

Below the link to the concert, there is the concert agenda, with each song performed by a different artist.  I would strongly recommend you listen, even if not every rendition is to your taste and you skip forward to the next.

This really constitutes a refreshing insight into what solo performers and duos can bring to songs that we have all heard so many times before.   Here are the songs covered…  With a bit of luck you’ll find the links on the left take you to the start of each track – each by a different artist.

  • 0:57 Buckets of Rain
  • 5:50 Tonight I’ll be Staying Here with You
  • 9:36 Just Like Tom Thumbs Blues.
  • 23:45 Walk out in the rain
  • 28:12 Knocking on Heavens Door
  • 32:47 Just Like a Woman
  • 37:26 Queen Jane
  • 42:37 Love Minus Zero..
  • 47:22 Boots of Spanish Leather
  • 54:00 Wayfaring Stranger
  • 59:45 Emmett Till (reworked..almost all Dylan lyrics left out!)
  • 1:08:51 Forever Young
  • 1:15:00 Dont think twice
  • 1:19:40  Simple Twist of Fate
  • 1:25:00 Like a rolling stone
  • 1:33:05 I shall be released

I do hope you enjoy it.

Many thanks indeed Andrew

    I’m glad you liked it Tony. I hope everyone else does too, and don’t let the description of the reworking of Emmett Till put you off – it’s a powerful (and heart breaking) performance.
