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.

Comments about It's All Over Now, Baby Blue:
|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...|

|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.|
