Smith Or Dillon?

A few folks criticized Patti Smith's Nobel version of A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall but it compares well with Dillon's own 1964 performance. Seventy years of life adds timbre and gravitas to a song as substantial as this one.

I don't know if Dillon was the best choice the Nobel prize for literature but the committee could have done worse.
