A very cool cover. As with about half of the tracks you post, I already have the song but not the label shot. Being totally anal about my mp3s, it brings me great joy to be able to slap the label on to the track. Thanks! W.

i am not a Dylan fan...just ain't my thing..

thus, i nominate this as the definitive version of the song...

All hail the King [Solomon]

What a great version of the Dylan
classic.
Now that Solomon has departed,it should be remembered he was one of the first black artists to cover Dylan.

Wonderful to hear it again after all these years.

RIP. You were a class act....
