S01.06 Ray Padgett (Cover Songs of Dylan's Time Out Of Mind)

Ray Padgett is an expert on cover songs. He runs the Cover Me website that reviews and discusses all kinds of cover song performances, and published a book called Cover Me that take a deep dive into twenty of the most iconic cover songs in history (including All Along The Watchtower and Make You Feel My Love).

We asked Ray if he would share his knowledge and impressions of Time Out Of Mind cover songs, and he gave us a fun and interesting presentation. This podcast captures that event, and a little Q&A afterwards.

Ray also runs a must-have Dylan email newsletter called Flagging Down The Double E’s. The newsletter does deep dives into legendary Dylan live shows, and has delivered some wonderful interviews with musicians that have played with Dylan as well.
