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
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)

I think she just might have sorta pulled it off, but I was indeed skeptical.
Most original award.
Leningrad Cowboys & Russian Red Army Choir
Original hair too! 😆
I got lost watching their other vids!! Khirad, I owe you big time! These guys are addictive. We owe it to the Planet to show what happened next in that show — where Mother Russia (as in the old classic Kalinka) meets rock, meets Handel, meets Yeeehaah! Unbelievable.
When it comes to hair and originality, who could ever beat this guy, though? There IS no other version of this song. Nor could there ever be! (Miss you, Cher!)
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?
Banned from “normal” (read “white”)radio.
Then some white kid comes along…..
Beyond The Horizon –
When The Deal Goes Down –
Wow, and here I thought that we were the only people to like and listen to Michael Bloomberg!
j’avaz, Paul Butterfield Blues Band was from Chicago and I saw them many times.
You got a pic now and I barely recognized you!
You’ve got a smiley face flower, too!
(that could be my mind seeing a smiley face from the LSD that I did once in the 70’s and really, I do not think that I ever did LSD, but I did do something from a little piece of paper and was up all night and buzzing – think it was speed because I’ve never hallucinated – although being my age now, I must say that I have hallucinated without taking anything!)
The husband is a HUGE Dylan fan, whereby I wasn’t, until a few years back and now I love Dylan.
He really was a poet and quite ahead of his time, but we read his autobiography, and I’d recommend that no one ever read the autobiography of a rock star, because they are honest in what they write, and they are really not the nicest people.
We still love their music but the worst one ever, that crushed my illusion was Eric Clapton’s.
Got to respect their honesty though and that they do admit their mistakes and have moved on, but the price paid compared to prices us normal people paid is magnified 100000000 times.
