Another cover tune, brought to you by remote recording: two guys in their socially distanced rooms making music together. This one isn't a tune I would've leapt on to do as a cover, but... it was a request! And being essentially a show biz animal eager to please, I decided to do my entertainerly duty and give it my best shot. Video of the performance (zoom zoom zoom) is at YT here. [more inside]
I am playing all the instruments and doing all the vocals in this recording. There are no software tacks. Youtube, Band camp. I recommend good headphones or good speakers for this recording. Small speakers are likely to distort a bit. [more inside]
It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording. [more inside]
It's a little known fact that wedding band and creepy stalker favorite "Every Breath You Take" is actually a cover of an old folk standard, as this recently discovered outtake from the "Another Side of Bob Dylan" sessions shows. The glossy adult contemporary arrangement popularized by Sting and the Police has unfortunately displaced the traditional arrangement in popular memory.
Another "get me out of this musical funk" cover. The more I hear Dylan sing this, the more I think this may be his most beautiful song. Here's my try. [more inside]
What I would sound like if I were trying to sound like Bob Dylan - if Dylan were simultaneously "bringin' it" and "keepin' it real". [more inside]
An attempt to anger both Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. [more inside]
Devastated folktronic cover of Dylan's version of Rick von Schmidt's Cambridge classic, "Baby Let Me Follow You Down." [more inside]
No one likes to kiss someone w/ smelly breath
This track is built around a beautiful song from Bob Dylan's Freewheelin' Outtakes bootleg. Enjoy!
