Subject: RE: Dylan overrated?You've got to be kidding
If you think that Dylan has a poor singing voice, then listen to Richard Thompson's "Dylan Medely". It is truly awful. The only voice that can carry the full meaning of a song is the voice of the writer. Take the soul-less renditions of Leonard Cohen's lyrics by a multitude of cover artists. The meaning of the lyrics is totally lost in orchestration. Nah, there is only one Dylan.
