Lay Lady Lay by Bob Dylan

I recently came across this cover of Bob Dylan’s classic “Lay Lady Lay” and it inspired me to go back to the original.  I’ve had a hard time with Dylan since I saw him play about 8 years ago and was incredibly disappointed.  He was clearly drunk or high on something, performed terribly (was barely audible) and didn’t even get through half a set.  That said, he was undeniably an extraordinary talent and one of the most influential artists ever of his generation and genre.  This cover by Magnet (the pseudanym of Norwegian Even Johansen) in collaboration with Gemma Hayes of Ireland really highlights the commutability of Dylan’s work.
