While I think it’s good to recognise the artists that have influenced a singer, I don’t see the point of an entire double CD of cover versions. I suspect that it was much better to be there than to hear it later.
The 1966 Dylan live recording is considered by many to be an absolute classic. There is no disputing the importance of Dylan electrifying his sound the previous year as it lays the groundwork for all intelligent rock that followed.
