Hi All :)


There may be threads on this already.


If you could have Bob sing cover songs; which ones would you like?


I would like to see some George Strait songs.


Older Country songs.

Nice choices :)


I was listening to George Strait today and thought of Bob singing a song of his.

Bob's voice would sound nice on different covers.

The older country songs as well.

This Set does not have room for covers, but would be nice to see/hear some.

Amazing, what are the Sinatra songs if they are not covers. I'd rather see them replaced with some songs, maybe just two or three, that were more of an influence on him.

I know we are getting Sinatra songs.



I mean when he used to do other covers as well, before 2002 Autumn Tour.


Some one-offs, etc.

Yup, you mean the stuff he used to sing in the clubs in Greenwich Village with Judy Collins, The Clancy Brothers and John Sebastian. All those traditional folk songs and stuff by people like Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.

If he had started singing Stormy Weather and Why Try To Change Me Now in those days he would have been manhandled off the stage by the folk purists. Things Have Changed!

I started watching the TV show Bojack Horseman yesterday. I like the think that if the show aired 50 years earlier, we could now listen to Bob playing the outro song on the Basement Tapes.

Speaking of adult animation, the "Evil Morty reveal song" from Rick and Morty would make for a nice noodle before Things Have Changed.

The three best cover songs I ever heard Dylan play is:
Angels flying to close to the ground (Willie Nelson), Deportees (Woody Guthrie), Why do I have to chose? (Willie Nelson). But please save me from more Sinatra songs!

Was daydreaming about what I'd pick for an ideal Bootleg Series compiled of stuff I've never heard before, just a little earlier today, & thought about concert rehearsal type stuff & modern (TOOM - on) studio type stuff. .... Would be nice to hear some of those sessions with Bob going over old songs to prep for Love & Theft. . ... I'm guessing they musta played a bunch together and not just listened as homework assignments, but don't recall or know if anything was ever recorded or not. ... Would without a doubt be part of my dream Bootleg Series.

Was thinking of that & also loose pre-concert rehearsal typa songs. ... His own & whatever covers.


As far as cover songs I'd pick ..... Love to hear most anything done by Hank Williams or Stanley Brothers. ... Think he'd do I Saw The Light really well. I'm actually surprised he hasn't done that one already (unless he has?). .... Would also like to hear him do Setting The Woods On Fire or Rambling Man.

With Stanley Brothers the only one I can think of off the top of my head he'd do well with, ... & hasn't already performed... is Love Me Darling Just Tonight. .. He's actually done a lot of their best already.

Bob has covered well over 600 songs . An incredible achievement.
One I want to hear , but it is only rumors that it exists is “Universal Soldier”.
Two I would like him to do but will probably never happen are “Last Thing On My Mind” and “Eve Of Destruction”.
