Willie Nelson and Engelbert Humperdinck: “Make You Feel My Love”

Engelbert Humperdinck recently released a new album of duets, Engelbert Calling (2014). On one of the tracks, Willie Nelson joins Humperdinck on “Make You Feel My Love,” a song that Chimesfreedom has discussed as one of Bob Dylan’s Late Career Classics. This collaboration is somewhat unusual. I am guessing this recording is one of those duets you are either going to love or hate, so check it out and judge for yourself.

Other artists that appear on Engelbert Calling include Elton John, Cliff Richards, Shelby Lynne, Dionne Warwick, and Il Divo.

    1. I was expecting this rendition of one of my favorite Dylan songs to be trite at best, and was pleasantly surprised.

      1. I agree it’s an odd combination, but it surprisingly works better than one might expect. Thanks for the comment.
