Audio/Video: Versions of ‘Maggie’s Farm’ by U2, the Grateful Dead, Toots Hibbert, Bob Dylan & Many More

Thought it would be a blast to listen to a variety of artists covering Bob Dylan’s “Maggie’s Farm.”

Below check out versions by Rage Against the Machine, the Grateful Dead, Uncle Tupelo, The Residents, The Waterboys, Toots Hibbert, The Specials, U2, Richie Havens, Stephen Malkmus, the Charlie Daniels Band and Solomon Burke.

Plus a version by David Grisman, John Hartford and Mike Seeger.

And Bob Dylan with and without The Band.

Hope you have as much fun with these as I did.
