If you like both Dylan and bluegrass music, check out Sam Bush - "Girl from the North Country"

Spozzy, maybe you can help with this one. It's a piano version of Wild Horses that sounds a lot like the one you posted, and I've had this exact track ever since the Napster days where nothing was ever labeled accurately. The file I have attributes this rendition of the song to Chantal Krevaziuk...

That is fucking immense (though, to be fair, I'm still not sure it's better than the original)!
