BALLADS, BLUES, STANDARDS – even the odd homage to a gobsmacked peer – Bob Dylan's brilliance as an interpreter rivals his eminence as a writer and auteur. And with Dylan's cover versions in the air, as his collection of Sinatra-related songs, Shadows In The Night, continues to wow the fans, MOJO picks the 20 Dylan covers we'd take to a desert island.
The full feature, complete with reasoning from our team of seasoned Dylanologists, appears in MOJO #256, which is now available on the newsstands in North America, or can be ordered online while stocks last.
In the meantime we present Dylan's best covers – in chronological order of recording – to listen to, plus a brief suggestion of why each song made it into our list.
