Bob Dylan covers are some of my very favorite songs. Every popular genre has taken from Bob's discography

Today's lunch time play list features Bob songs done up Rhythm & Blues style, Starting with Taj Mahal

That last one was straight up Blues, but Isaac Hayes has the Rhythm

I never knew that Taj and Ry were in a band together in the mid 60's.

They also cover Statesboro Blues and Candyman among others.

A target rich environment.
I always thought a hard rock version of "Like A Rolling Stone" would be cool to do.
I also fooled around with a cocktail jazz piano version of "Tangled Up In Blue". Fun.
