Portraits of Bob Dylan is the title of Yes guitarist Steve Howe's ninth solo album, released in 1999. The album features his son Dylan Howe on drums and several other guest artists, including (former) Yes band members Jon Anderson and Geoff Downes, performing cover versions of Bob Dylan songs. Keith West, lead singer of the 1960s band Tomorrow (in which Howe was the guitarist), sings lead on "Lay Lady Lay".

Reception[edit]

Allmusic reviewer Stewart Mason gave the album 2 stars out of 5, stating "Portraits of Bob Dylan is pleasant enough, and it's a nice gesture toward an obvious hero of Howe's, but it's not even close to essential for either Dylan or Howe fans".[1]
