Covers have always been a big part of the Never Ending Tour; the folk songs in the early acoustic sets, the bluegrass openers from the Larry/Charlie days, the standards from the last few years, and the occasional one-off surprises that pop up out of the blue. What are some of your favourites?

I can't choose only one.

Trail of the buffalo, Friend of the devil, Rovin' Gambler... Ah, and that amazing Hallelujah, I'm Ready To Go he did in the Horsens Theatre. To name a few. But there are a lot of amazing covers.

I saw him do "Duncan and Brady" in Moline, IL. Larry and Charlie on vocals. Fantastic. And about 20 years later, Bob's still on the job.

Then there’s a whole bunch that are exceptional
Sure I’m missing many many more. But the ones that also jump out ...
Lucky old sun
Long black veil
Accidentally like
Carrying a torch

Friend of the devil
This world can’t stand
Hoochie Coochie man
Homeword bound
You don’t know me
White dove
I can’t be satisfied
I’ve been all aroud this world
Man of constant sorrow
Stay with me
Autumn leaves
Shake sugaree

I never knew Dylan covered Homeward Bound. Sounds great and I haven't even heard it yet.

Can someone share a good MP3 for Vincent Black Lightning? Just realized the one I have, probably from the day after he performed it, starts halfway through the first verse.

My favorites…
Accidentally Like A Martyr
Alabama Getaway
A Change Is Gonna Come
Hallelujah, I'm Ready to Go
Oh Babe It Ain't No Lie
Rank Strangers to Me
Samson and Delilah
Searchin' For a Soldier's Grave
Something
Trail of the Buffalo

Either your memory is unreliable, or you're a traitor to the cause. As far as I know, only one person had that MP3 the day after he performed it. We all searched desperately for nearly a year for the elusive recording, then it finally turned up, with much rejoicing, although missing half of the first verse. If you had it all along, why didn't you let us know? :lol:
