Dylan Covered - Absolutely Sweet Marie
We are back to the Saturday slot this week and back to Blonde On Blonde.
A narrow victory for Bob last time out against a well received Nanci Griffith with Boots of Spanish Leather.
The scores on the doors are therefore now Bob 6 Cover Artists 5.
Another Country artist is up for the challenge this week albeit one slightly more alternative than Nanci.
A demo by Jason and the Scorchers of Absolutely Sweet Marie which I have on the Uncut: Radio Radio compilation but which comes from 2002's Wildfires and Misfires:Two Decades of Outtakes and Rarities on the Blue Rose label..
The raw energy of the Scorchers version swings it for me.
Others may choose to disagree
