As a former habitu‚ of the 1960s Greenwich Village folk scene, the singer Maria Muldaur has more of a right than most to be performing a Bob Dylan covers album. This set of well-chosen and imaginatively arranged versions, released in 2006, of some of Dylan's best love songs proves Muldaur's mastery of both sultry after-hours pieces like the swaying "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" and the come-hither "Lay Baby Lay" (originally, of course,"Lay Lady Lay"), as well as Dylan's less literal expressions of romance, such as "The Golden Loom", an obscurity filled with interwoven religious, pagan, and sexual imagery.
