When Bob Dylan announced his 36th album would be a collection of pop standards originally recorded by Frank Sinatra, most long-time fans were dumbfounded. But the resultant album "Shadows In The Night" showed the singer-songwriter make the tunes all his own, using his ageing, gravelly voice to produce a record that was, well, Dylanesque.



But then Dylan has always been about change, whether it was trading in his trusted acoustic guitar to go electric in 1965, becoming a born again Christian in the late 1970s (a change that influenced his music on several albums) or flirting disastrously with contemporary sounds in the mid-1980s before making a strong comeback with the album "Oh Mercy".
