Yes, Elvis was versatile.

But Dylan is versatile, too. Catch his versions of things Sinatra and his peers made famous.

Bottom line for me: this is the best time ever to be a fan of all sorts of music, because it's all there for us, all the time.

I just think Dean and Elvis had the most beautiful voices imaginable - not talking phrasing or material necessarily, or even conviction. I think they had warmer voices then Bennett or Sinatra for sure. Calvanese loves Bobby Darin. Not a lot of people in this league, certainly Patsy Cline and Aretha on the distaff side.
