If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Some covers of “That Lucky Old Sun” in anticipation of the new Dylan album

The new  Dylan album is all versions of songs previously recorded by Frank Sinatra.

It ends with a version of “That Lucky Old Sun.”  It’s kinda been done.  You’ve got versions by Jerry Lee, Aretha, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, LaVern Baker, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Willie Nelson, etc….  They’ve pretty much got it covered.  And then there’s the Frank Sinatra version (far from my favorite) that apparently inspired the Dylan version…


Dylan is still a very interesting performer to me, but this does not seem to me what makes him so.  Here’s a story about the album, where you can listen to one of the songs, “Stay With Me.”
