Dylan Day today on WUMB, the local folk radio station.  

Main observation so far: Dylan does his songs much better than those who cover him.  Hendrix excepted.  Most Dylan covers remove both the mean and the funny.

The Byrds also did some Dylan songs better than Dylan. My Back Pages and You Ain't Goin' Nowhere come to mind.

Hendrix did Dylan songs better tha Dylan.

*okay, everyone tune to E flat*

and Rod Stewart did Dylan better than Dylan - hell everybody that did Dylan, did it better than Dylan.  

Before he wierded himself out by going Christo on us, Dylan was always a writer, but he sings like Joe G does Info Theory.

Nah.  No way.  True Dylan's a writer, while Rod Stewart is slowly becoming the lounge singer of his childhood dreams, but Dylan's got a voice that's just right for his songs: he wraps his voice around a lyric.  The proper comparison is to Frank Sinatra.  

Plus, Dylan's Christian period was only like two albums long (two and a half if you count Shot of Love).  And Dylan's renaissance in the last three CD's (starting with Time out of Mind) is astonishing: he's becoming a great old blues singer channeling the whole history of American music.  

I'll say Hendrix and the Byrds do great versions.  On A Nod to Bob, I like the Eliza Gilkyson version of Love Minus Zero/No Limit, and the Rambling Jack Elliott Don't Think Twice, but Martin Simpson's cover of Boots of Spanish Leather -- my god, how many ways can you ruin a song?  

Most of the Dylan covers, especially the folk ones, are too damn reverential.  They take the cloying sincerity of a few songs on The Times They are a Changing and make that the dominant tone on every song.

Actually, I would have suggested the proper comparison is Willie Nelson. Both have voices that are more gravel-truck than Sinatra.  But, as you say, both know how to own a song.

Joan Baez's version of "Boots of Spanish Leather" is another disaster. But her versions of "Love is Just a Four Letter Word" and "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" are beautiful.

referencing the dylan discussion above:
my eldest child (19 yr old male) just brought home an armload of vinyl that belongs to his main squeeze's parent.  
said sqeeze is seriously xtian.
as are parental units.
armload is of serious thumper soft rock.
one of the albums is dylan's "slow train coming".
unfamiliar with that album.
artwork looks xtian.

one is barry mcguire's "lighten up" album with "eve of destruction".  
there's another mcguire on which i recognize nothing.

we are tasked with converting to cd.
i be has isb turntable.
i am considering what to slide onto said cd's as payment.

eagles "last resort"?
inxs "dear god"?
suggestions?

and what exactly what does it mean when one is trotting out all the old heavy metal from one's childhood and the chirrens say "enough lawrence welk, play something heavy..."

I'm thinking Diamanda Galas, or anything from Current 93's "Dogs Blood Rising."

But then, I am kind of a purist when it comes to that Satan-y music

anything on Reign In Blood is good.

Also "Spiral Architect" Black Sabbath

I reeeeeeallllly like the Hymn 43 idea.  excellent.

Ronnie James Dio...

of course if you go full bore death metal they just fast forward it or throw it away...  Skynyrd "Things Going On".  Also David Allan Coe "Aint nothing sacred anymore" if you can get it.

and if you can get it let me know.

that's why i'm leaning towards "the last resort".

musically soothing.  

they'll get at least halfway through it.

i thought about telling them that i'd provide cd's without if they could tell me the last line....that would perhaps ensure they'd listen to all of it.

Reign in Blood seconded, just slap on "Altar of Sacrifice."  

But maybe something more subtle like Tea for the Tillerman, since Cat has done become Yusuf, and a muslim 'n stuff.

Totally cool. I was just listening to Mood Indigo from the Mingus Dynasty album, and remembering the first time I heard Mingus.
Not saying when.
