You might as well ask me, Zappa as sung by Zappa, or Zappa as sung by Johnny
Mathis? I like Baez (in moderation; I'll take Kate Bush in massive overdoses),
but I simply can't imagine Blood On The Tracks, or Oh Mercy!, or any of them,
really, having the same emotion with anyone but Dylan. It's fresh versus
canned. The green beans may be the same, and even taste wonderful, but they're
different vegetables.
