One thought on “5 wonderful acoustic Bob Dylan covers by Ron Sexsmith”

  1. Having had the privilege of being a part of the 60s scene in the Village and being a friend of Bobby, Suze, Van Ronk, Paxton, Stookey etc ,(it’s a long list) it’s really cool that we have actual footage of those years to compare with whats going down today. For instance, Bobby’s singing “Love minus zero (no limits)” in a London hotel room in 1965 is still with us on youtube . I just listened to it and saw once again how incredible that young troubadour was. There is now another younger singer on the scene from England named Marcus Foster. He sometimes strikes sparks in his lyrics that have echo’s of those halcyon days. “I Don’t Mind” has some Dylanesque imagery and I, as a certified Old Troubadour, DOB 04\13\1934 have undertaken to interpret “I Don’t Mind” in a new video. Here’s the link. For comparison, Marcus’ version is also on Youtube. listen to both versions and get an old and new view of the troubadour tradition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myEG_BnKCF
