The Best Dylan Covers: Rosanne Cash and Jeff Tweedy – Farewell Angelina

Farewell Angelina” is a song written by Bob Dylan in the mid-1960s, and most famously recorded by Joan Baez. Dylan attempted to record “Farewell Angelina” only once, during the first session for his 1965 album Bringing it All Back Home, and he abandoned all attempts to record the song again. Dylan’s one recording of the song was eventually issued in 1991 on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991.

Our pick for this time for the series, The Best Dylan Covers, is from a concert from February 20 this year. Jeff and Rosanne has worked together on a song before(Long Black Veil) in 2009 on a Johnny Cash tribute album. Their voices are a very good match.

Enjoy this wonderful duet!
