 Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there, too
Throw my troubles out the door

April 9: Bob Dylan released Nashville Skyline in 1969

Well, Jann, I’ll tell you something. There’s not too much of a change in my singing style, but I’ll tell you something which is true… I stopped smoking. When I stopped smoking my voice changed… So drastically, I couldn’t believe it myself. That’s true. I tell you, you stop smoking those cigarettes (laughter)… and you’ll be able to sing like Caruso.
~Bob Dylan (to Jann Wenner Nov 1969)

Anyway, on Nashville Skyline you had to read between the lines. I was trying to grasp something that would lead me on to where I thought I should be, and it didn’t go nowhere – it just went down, down, down.
~Bob Dylan (to Jonathan Cott, Sept 1978)

Released 47 years ago, it surely is one of his most controversial albums.. “Embracing” classic Country music &  kicking off the “Country Rock” genre.

I’ve always liked this album… not a masterpiece, but a solid Dylan album.

#1 – Girl from the North Country (with Johnny Cash)

The Best Dylan Covers: Jeff Beck Group – Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You

“Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here with You” is a song written by Bob Dylan from his 1969 album Nashville Skyline. It was the closing song of the album. The song was the third single released from the album.

Jeff Beck Group is the fourth studio album by The Jeff Beck Group and the second album with the line up of Jeff Beck, Bobby Tench, Clive Chaman, Max Middleton and Cozy Powell. The album was produced by Steve Cropper and often referred to as the Orange Album, because of the orange which appears prominently at the top of the front cover. The album has a wonderful song selection with unique arrangements that allows the virtuosity of the players to shine through. Jeff Beck as usual  let his group members shine.  Steve Cropper’s production is sometimes described as sloppy on this album, I don’t hear it. It’s a hidden gem and an underrated classic!

It is a very soulful  album, and it includes this raw and very hones rendition of Bob Dylan’s Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You.
