Daily Distraction: Listen to some Dylan covers that are actually worth listening to
'Dylan Revisited' comes with the June 2021 issue of 'Uncut' magazine; hear Low's version of 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' now
Plenty of artists have covered the songs of Bob Dylan, so I'm generally not enthused when I hear about a new take on a Robert Zimmerman classic. But Dylan Revisited, a forthcoming compilation from Uncut magazine, is an exception. It features 14 Dylan songs by artists such as Low, the Flaming Lips, Richard Thompson, Thurston Moore, the Weather Station and (a personal favorite) Joan Shelley with Nathan Salsburg. The comp comes packaged with the June issue of Uncut.
Listen to Low's version of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" below.
