Cover vs. Original

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue


What a great song! I have first litened to it in the version by Van Morrison in his group Them and was sold on it. Van Morrison has such a great voice and it really suits this song.
Sorry Bob Dylan fans, my vote goes to Van Morrison.

Bob Dylan
Just listen to his live version circa 1965
Van took it somewhere else, and its great
But Dylan is Dylan and this is one of his finest....

I prefer The Byrds version over both of these - McGuinn knew just what to do with Dylan's stuff! Either way, it's great music!

i'm not sure actually. i'm stuck in time on this one as both provide amazing memories. but right now, i can't get the them version off my player. "strike another match. go start anew". that line alone: such memories.

Van has always been and will always be my favorite musician. I used to have this Them album, but I don't know what happened to it. Can't find a copy now--except for $50 on Amazon. Anyone know how I can get it?

I like the Grateful Dead version (from the Soundtrack "Masked and Anonymous") best.

I personally like the Byrds' jangly version of this song.

Die Coverversion von Them ist weitaus bekannter & kam schon damals, wie auch heute mit ihrem melodischen Charakter viel besser beim breiten Publikum an.
Bob Dylans Original hingegen ist heutzutage nur noch was für Fans & Freunde des Blues. Und für Den, der sich genauer mit der Sache beschäftigt, stellt sich diese Frage sowieso nicht. Van Morrison hat mit Them diesen Song nur populär gemacht - so wie er in der Erinnerung vieler Menschen einen festen Platz hat...

Arrrrgh... tough choice... both versions are quite good in different ways... this is apples and oranges...
- ASPicco, New York, United States, 16.09.2007
Great comments guys but you can't overlook the version done by Aussie artist Russell Morris. It's worth a listen, even better than the Bonnett version (in my humble opinion !)

Covers (that I know of) have also been done by Bonnie Rait, Graeme Bonnet, Marianne Faithful and (of course) Joan Baez.
