The other day I was listening to a new release of Bob Dylan tapes that were done when he was in his twenties on “All Songs Considered, called “The Whitmark Tapes.” In my lifetime he has gone from “who is he?” to “what is he?” to elevator music.  What struck me was in that set of tapes was the number of them that were later recorded (and became hits) by other groups.  One example, Mr. Tambourine Man

The Byrds

And of course we can’t for get this smash hit (?)

Another song that has had many good versions of it done was Donovans “Season of the Whitch” (just in time for the Delaware election) Bands love to jam on this song

One of the best jams
Al Kooper/Mike Bloomfield: Season of the Witch (Live)

There is your mission, Planeters, if you are willing to accept it.

And just for  your dreams.


TGIF~~~HAPPY FRIDAY!

I am without doubt gonna favorite the “Leningrad Cowboys and Russian Red Army Chorus.” A visual and auditory mind-blower if ever there was one. The pointy shoes. The belting baritones and basses. The uniforms. The medals. I love it.

What do you suppose Dylan would say about it?
