Dylan Covered - Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again
Well the first week saw a decisive victory for the Byrds.
The score so far then is Bob Dylan 0 Cover Artists 1
In the week that he was finally awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature it is probably fitting that we go for a magnificent song from a magnificent album with a magnificent title.
From the masterpiece that is Blonde on Blonde here is Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again.
A somewhat more obscure cover this week as it is covered by Hill Country Bluesmen North Mississippi Allstars.
Or perhaps it should be the North Mississippi Upstarts for having the audacity to take this on.
My tuppence worth - I like the way they have put their own stamp on the song but it's Bob for me all day long.
