"Decent"?   Among the few complaints I've heard from listeners over the 
years, one or more of these Dylan covers has elicited a couple.

Abbey Lincoln Mr Tambourine Man (Who Used to Dance)
Bob Dorough Don't Think Twice (Just About Everything)
Kate McGarry The Times They Are A-Changin' (If Less Is More)
