Well, while I was playing with my music tonight while saying goodbye to hopes for a friendship with someone I care about, and I came across three versions that I love of a song that I love. So I was thinking. . . what is your favorite version? Here we have Boots of Spanish Leather sung by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Nanci Griffith.
It is hard not to love the original. Dylan's voice is so evocative.
Joan Baez did this song on a wonderful album of Dylan covers. I adore Baez, and while her voice is so much more refined than Dylan's, I think she understands him.
Finally, there is my lovely Nanci Griffith. What can I say about Nanci?
Vote early and vote often! I'd love to hear what you think.
