If It Be Your Will

Postby Zimmy66 » Fri Oct 25, 2013 12:38 pm

Whilst we've (ok - me!) have been enthralled over the past five years with Hattie and Charlie's rendition of If It Be Your Will, surely this is the definitive version:

As CBS' 60's blurb said "Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan", surely there are no dissenters to nobody sings this song like Leonard?

No argument from me.

Julie and Perla backing Leonard, it's never been any better "but" his version with the superb Jennifer Warnes is right up there and alongside. Incidentally, I do think LC and Jennifer Warnes sing Joan of Arc best of all.

I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Yes, I agree nobody does it like Leonard, but I like also the cover from Antony.

Yes Wybe, a credible version from Antony. Heard him a few years back performing it live.

Vicomte - you and I have several discussions now about the 'old' girls. 'Nuff said. ;-) :D
