Gregg Allman dog i maj. Snart kommer skivan "Southern Blood", som Allman spelade in med Don Was förra året. En av de låtar Allman tolkar på skivan är Dylans "Going, Going, Gone".
www.rollingstone.com/music/features/inside-gregg-allmans-final-album-southern-blood-w494132

Citera
During several meetings with Allman to map out the project, Was suggested melancholic songs like Dylan's "Going Going Gone," and Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter's "Black Muddy River." ... (Of the Dylan song, a little-known dirge from Planet Waves, Allman cracked to Sharrard, "Song's kind of dark, isn't it?")

Waterboys spelar på Munchenbryggeriet i Stockholm om drygt 2 månader; jag kommer att vara där.

Här en riktigt trevlig version av LARS, som bandet gjorde nyligen i en av BBC Radios morgonsändningar.

En cover som inte går att lyssna på än då den släpps först om några veckor, och som jag är rejält nervös över att höra eftersom både "Most of the time" och Luna betyder väldigt, väldigt mycket för mig. Här är ett klipp ur en intervju med Dean Wareham, sångaren i Luna. Jag tycker att det är intressant att ta del av arbetet och tankarna bakom en cover.

Washataw: You had mentioned in a newsletter that you thought you nailed Bob Dylan’s “Most of the Time.” We agree. You also thought it was a difficult song. Why was that?

Dean: I have always loved this song, the lyrics, the Lanois production, but it was a bitch to sing because there isn’t much of a melody to study (except in the bridge which is melodic), so I was not sure what the correct notes were. I’m not even sure you’d even call that singing. I met Damo Suzuki of Can at a festival a few years ago; someone approached him and said, “Oh, I really like your singing!” And his response was, “No, I am not singing. I am being Damo Suzuki.”

I listened to Dylan’s studio version, and I checked out a bootleg demo he released, too, and it seemed to me that maybe he had no idea what he was going to do; that he had the words down on paper, but wasn’t at all sure of the melody or the phrasing. So maybe his performance of the song is closer to acting, or being Bob Dylan, than to singing.

Anyway, the struggle was to tell that story and figure out if it’s a sad song (I think so) or if the guy is so over it that “she ain’t even on my mind.” Lyrically, it’s wonderful, each verse is about different ways that he no longer thinks about this woman, but there’s that line at the end of each “most of the time” that suggests there are parts of the day where he’s not fine at all.

I sang that song three different times, I mean not just three different takes, but several takes on three different days. I sang it hard and I sang it soft. I sang it tough and I sang it sad, almost making myself cry one day. But ultimately some of the best lines were from the “scratch” vocal that I did very quickly the day we recorded, before I had bothered to study it at all, because those lines were off the cuff and I, too, was just kinda picking my way through the lyrics.

Spännande med alla covers på kommande skiva.
Hoppas vi får höra Bob, Mink DeVille och alla de andra i soliga Spanien snart :party: På pricken en månad till Madrid idag.

...och det finns ingen tråd om Luna på L&T, Ulrika. Du är kvinnan att starta den, om du vill. Kram !

Har ännu inte hört denna, men lite nyfiken blir jag ju på Dylan i instrumental jazztappning med Andreas Hourdakis Trio.

Jag lyfter upp den här igen, PJ Harveys version av Shot Of Love.

Jag tror att den här nu en gång för alla, för mig, har placerat sig som den BÄSTA dylancovern någonsin. Genom tiderna fram t o m nu.  -_-
