Have always liked the Foo Fighters' cover of Baker Street.  Ir remember an old interview with Gerry Rafferty where he said something about liking the cover better than his original  They left the vocals alone and just changed the music.   Second choice, Shooter Jennings' cover of Walk of Life.  Countried it up and the video is pretty funny.

J M, YES, YOU'RE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT TO COME ON HOME, YOU NEED TO KNOW : HIGHWAY 61( DYLAN) IS IN NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI, NEAR JACKSON- WHERE IT CROSSES HIGHWAY_- IS SAID TO BE WHERE ROBERT JOHNSON SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL.

As the late great, Robert Johnson once said "I went down to the Crossroads, and fell down on my knees, Asked the Lord for mercy, he said if you please. Highway 61 has got to do with an old testament bible passage"God said to Abraham give me your son, take him on down to Highway 61. Crossroads and Ramblin' on My Mind, both Robert Johnson compositions, were part of my show repetoire for many years, still play them to this day. Dylan was too, just not that particular song. PS: Love him too. I'm not sure if that's the reference you're looking for but I think I'm in the neighborhood. Let me know.

I've played guitar for fifty years. Was part of the LA music world fro 1979-1997. I play a 1971 Gibson 335, what looks like Lucille in case you don't play. Been in more blues jams than I'd like to admit to, cause it means I'm old. Kind of known for my blues vocals in some circles too Also have seen some of the same people you have,
but also Buddy Guy, Jr. Wells, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. One of the best blues acts I ever saw was in Buffalo, NY local act named The Shakin' Smith Blues Band, the guys blues harp was somewhere between Little Walter, and Paul Butterfield...stone cold assasin. PS Anson Funderbergh and the Rockets.....DYNAMITE!!!

I'm with you on this one. SRV is one of the true all time greats. Tin Pan Alley, great rendition, of pure blues.
Real simple guitar plugged into the amp, no effects pedals, pure talent blues. Man that boy could play!!!!!!
