Full Dylan Album Covered: Bob Dylan – Blood On The Tracks
Blood on the tracks is my favourite Bob Dylan album, and it is the one of his albums I play most often. I love it, one of the best albums ever recorded.
This is a post where I have dug out some cover versions of the songs on the record, none of them are as good as the originals, but they’re good and they are interesting. Let us do it the old fashion vinyl way.
This is side one:
1. Jerry Garcia Band – Tangled Up in Blue – 7/9/1977 – Convention Hall:
” the somber, nearly claustrophobic strains of I Shall Be Released burst with the fiery force of spiritual transcendence.”

Jerry Garcia Band – I Shall Be Released – The Best Dylan Covers
I Shall Be Released is a 1967 song written by Bob Dylan.
The Band recorded the first officially-released version of the song for their 1968 debut album, Music from Big Pink, with Richard Manuel singing lead vocals, and Rick Danko and Levon Helm harmonizing in the chorus. The song was also performed near the end of the Band’s 1976 farewell concert, The Last Waltz, in which all the night’s performers (with the exception of Muddy Waters) plus Ringo Starr and Ronnie Wood appeared on the same stage. Additional live recordings by the Band were included on the 1974 concert album Before the Flood and the 2001 expanded CD reissue of Rock of Ages.
