Music: Covers of Bob Dylan’s Basement Tapes songs

Bob Dylan is 80 today. That’s hard to believe. Rolling Stone and Variety each compiled a list of the 80 best Dylan covers. I’m going to focus on the Basement Tapes songs from 1967. Dylan did a demo of 14 songs that were covered by other artists. The most famous is Manfred Mann’s version of “Mighty Quinn”. Seven of Dylan’s recordings were on the first major bootleg, Great White Wonder.

The Band released three Basement tapes songs on their first album, Music from Big Pink. Two had been co-written with Band members.
