Dylan cover of the day 26: Dear Landlord

By Tony Attwood

Maybe there is something wrong with me today for I have been plodding through cover after cover trying to find something I want to share with you.   I mean, why can’t I find a brilliant cover version of “Dark Eyes” on the internet?  Maybe I am just not looking properly.

So I have moved on to Dear Landlord and found a couple of versions that I enjoy.  Of course, this first one doesn’t require any searching because I’ve called upon this album so often…

I guess the Fairport version is one that lots of us know.

But this last one was found by Jochen in his review in 2019.  It was worth special attention then, and it certainly still is.  The accompaniment is not like anything I have ever heard before.  Unique, original, enterprising, challenging – whoever wrote the arrangement needs a medal.  Wow.
