So far, according to my ears nothing comes remotely close to this rendition in sharing the songbook blah de blah blah. The OP has a lot of nerve posting this, do you ask The Beatles fans to post that?

If (almost) all covered Dylan songs are revolting, does that actually mean that the songs themselves are poo(r)?

No. There are very few of Dylan's songs that I don't like, especially when he's played them live (post Before the Flood, mind you).

Performing cover songs is a two edged sword... Attempt to play it like the original or a familiar studio release and it will likely sound botched and inept. Taking creative license leaves one open to making it sound like crap for an entirely different reason. Dylan has shown he has the ability to cover his own music, re-arrange, shift things and make it sound fresh. For reasons I don't fully understand, many groups simply do not have that ability.

One "major" group did a cover of Knockin' On Heaven's Door about 20 or so years ago that the International Court in The Hague nearly condemned as a crime against humanity.
