jimi hendrix Monterey 1967

 Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People call say ‘beware doll, you’re bound to fall’
You thought they were all kidding you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hanging out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging your next meal

Here are 9 great cover versions of “Like A Rolling Stone”

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – (winterland 1968)

Bob Dylan – Brown Sugar
FIRST UNION CENTER
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA
NOVEMBER 15, 2002

Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar),
Charlie Sexton (guitar),
Larry Campbell (guitar, mandolin, pedal steel guitar & electric slide guitar),
Tony Garnier (bass),
George Recile (drums & percussion)

Bob Dylan did many great cover versions of Stone’s “Brown Sugar” during 2002 (36 performances.. and one in 2003)

Dylan premiered this Jagger / Richards classic during the opening show of the October / November 2002 leg of his US tour. The first performance was in Seattle, Washington on October 4, 2002, after which the song was played in the number six slot at every show apart from October 13, when it was replaced by ‘ot Fade Away’. The reason for the song’s inclusion is unclear but it did coincide with the Stones’ much publicized and scrutinized 2002 “Licks” tour. …. …
Still, with guitarists Larry Campbell and Charlie Sexton on hand to crank out the riffs and add the ‘Wooh-wooh’s to the song’s conclusion, ‘Brown Sugar’ has been one of the more thrilling Bob Dylan live covers of recent years.

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People’d call, say, “Beware doll, you’re bound to fall”
You thought they were all kiddin’ you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin’ out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

Bob Dylan – Great duets part 4: British invasion

A duet is a musical composition for two performers in which the performers have equal importance to the piece. It is often used to describe a composition involving two singers. It differs from a harmony, as the performers take turns performing a solo section rather than performing simultaneously.

Part1, Part2, Part3

Bob Dylan has done a lot of duets, we have collected some of our favourites and will present them in batches of three. This fourth post has three fine duets some great Brits.

Bob Dylan and Rolling Stones: audio and video

watch

I’ve tried to find songs written by Bob Dylan, performed by Bob Dylan with The Stones or members of The Stones. I have also included covers of Dylan songs done by present or former members of Rolling Stones. In addition I have included a video of Dylan singing Brown Sugar.

There are also a few songs by other artists but performed with Bob Dylan and a member of Stones.

If you guys out there know some more, please include them in the comments.

Enjoy!
