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!

One of the greatest albums ever…
The Beatles had initiated a second pop revolution – one which while galvanising their existing rivals and inspiring many new ones, left all of them far behind.

What did we get wrong? What did we miss? Well, nothing of course, this is THE list. No, just kidding, this is our view of the year in music, and as we have said many times before, we only write about the stuff we like and we can not reach everything.
Enjoy! …and use the comments to voice your opinions!
9. Drive-by Truckers – English Oceans
This is a good straight rock album and it is a Cooley album (he has six compositions shaping the tone of the album).Cooley also takes lead vocals on Patterson Hood’s lyrics on Til He’s Dead or Rises, a first for Drive-by Truckers after nearly 20 years of playing. The Truckers sounds pissed-off, it’s a powerful album and immediate album (recorded in 13 days). We can always count on Drive-by Truckers and even if this isn’t their greatest album, it’s damn good and the ninth best album of 2014.
Selected songs: Primer Coat, Grand Canyon, First Air of Autumn
Drive-By Truckers – Full Performance (Live on KEXP),
The Part Of Him
First Air Of Autumn
