Any Major Bob Dylan Covers Vol. 4

The first three volumes comprised covers of most of the better-known Dylan songs. This compilation, and the upcoming Vol. 5, enters the terrain of some lesser-known tracks (unless you’re a Dylanista, in which case there is no such thing as an obscure song).

This means that for many listeners, some of these cover versions serve as an introduction to Dylan songs they didn’t know; and for the Dylan fans, I hope there are some versions of the tracks they know which they hadn’t heard before.

As ever, CD-R length, masterpiece-painted covers, PW in comments.

    Great compilation (as usual), mate – Keep up the good work!
    Just one query… excuse my pedantry, but shouldn’t the Costello track be ‘I Threw It All Away’?

    Regarding George Thorogood’s “Drifter’s Escape”, there is also a German (Viennese) version by Wolfgang Ambros, “Des Sandlers Flucht” (Sandler is a Viennese word for homeless person).

    Thanks so much for the compilations! I really love them. FWIW, “Don’t Throw Your Love Away” is not a Dylan song, but a gem nonetheless! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_Throw_Your_Love_Away

    Thanks so much. We often forget what a terrific and prolific writer Dylan is. All 4 comps are wonderful. Cheers!
