I remember the version of 'Crawfish' you're talking about. I'm pretty sure it was Stan Campbell (I wonder whatever happened to him?)

Dylan butchered a few in his time. Blue Moon, on "Self Portrait" (arguably not an Elvis original, but I don't think The Zimm had The Marcels' version in mind when he recorded it). He also covered Can't Help Falling In Love and A Fool Such As I on the "Dylan" album. These should be quickly passed over (topical reference there) as this topic concerns Best Covers rather than Low Points In A Major Artist's Recording Career.Charlie wrote:I don't think the Beatles, the Stones or Dylan covered an Elvis original, did they?
