Tambourine Man, by Bruce Langhorne -- a longtime session man, though not one of the Kinks'. You've heard him on old records by Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, John Sebastian, Richie Havens, etc. In the '70s he turned to scoring movies. This is his first solo album, and it's pretty much a one-man multitracked show. It's fun and loose and often silly, and it put a big smile on my face.
Another Music In A Different Kitchen and Singles Going Steady
Great Uncle! I think you'll especially like Singles Going Steady!
Please let us know what you think when you've had chance to have a few listens to them both!
Currently listening to Singles Going Steady by The Buzzcocks. Its a great album and an excellent band. When i ordered the album, one reviewer said they were punk with some psychodelia, and that sounded great to me!
Dylan is one songwriter for whom the covers are often even better than the originals!
I must disagree with Holly and Smiley -- no one puts over a Dylan song like Dylan does! His phrasing and delivery are masterful. Part of the pleasure of listening to Dylan is feeling, over and over again, that he sang that line just right. He might steal lines from other writers, and he might steal ideas for his paintings from other artists, but he can't fake his performance -- it's the most authentic thing about him.
OK, I've said my piece. Now you can go ahead and make fun of me for my bizarre taste.
