How does it feel?
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 3:06pm Ted:

Actually I said that.
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:28pm Debbie D:

Diggin' it, Ted!
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 3:33pm Ted:

Hi Debbie
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Ted! Fiveash! Debbie!
Ah, I noticed you were moving to the afternoons. It's actually an easier time to catch you at this time. Hopefully will be for others as well.
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 3:38pm Ted:

Hey Matt. Thanks for tuning in
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:39pm seang:

the Replacements do a drunken version called, "Like a Rolling Pin"
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:40pm Tom:

The question arises, who was the 1st recording artist to cover a Bob Dylan song?
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 3:44pm Ted:

Not sure.
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Great O.V. Wright version--this one has "Mountain exist" as the 2nd stanza. Seems like every artist selects which order to sing the 2nd and 3rd stanzas, I've heard several as well as flipped around. Suppose it depends what kind of emphasis you want to give the song at the end. Either anti-war "..that too many people have died", or an activist bent "..and pretend that he just doesn't see".
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:51pm Matt from Springfield:

First Bob Dylan cover? Wow, that was probably too long ago, in too obscure of a club for anyone to know with any certainty.

Now IIRC, the first cover of "Blowin' In The Wind" on the other hand, was it's very first public performance. Dylan apparently showed another guy how to play it and gave a lyric sheet--I guess Bob just thought it was too powerful a song to premiere himself or something.
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 3:53pm Ted:

"Blowin in the Wind" was most likely the song.
  Thu. 5/24/12 3:54pm Matt from Springfield:

"Dylan originally wrote and performed a two-verse version of the song; its first public performance, at Gerde's Folk City on April 16, 1962, was recorded and circulates among Dylan collectors. Shortly after this performance, he added the middle verse to the song." Maybe that story I heard was the first time with the complete verses being performed.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Also "Some published versions of the lyrics reverse the order of the second and third verses, apparently because Dylan simply appended the middle verse to his original manuscript, rather than writing out a new copy with the verses in proper order." That's a reason for the lack of a definitive order.

Wow, didn't know Fairport C. performed "Million Dollar Bash"! Gives it almost a bluegrass feel.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

I'll have to remember "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" if I ever get the trivia question: "Name ANOTHER Bob Dylan song Jimi Hendrix has played."
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 4:10pm Ted:

Thanks, Matt.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

No prob, Ted. I'm always a volunteer researcher whenever I'm on the boards!
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:13pm Tom:

All Along the the Watchtower.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Tom: That's the one everyone knows, and most fans know that Dylan wrote it. But, if challenged to come up with *another* Hendrix song that Dylan wrote..."Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window" is one!
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Does the arrangement of this Luxuria remind anyone else of Elvis Costello's "Veronica"?
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:27pm Tom:

Like a Rolling Stone was a Dylan song that Hendrix played at the Monterey Pop Festival 1967.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Tom, that's an easier title to remember. I oughta listen/watch Hendrix's Monterey performance, it's supposed to be very important in making him famous in the States.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:36pm Pedro:

Would have been great if Otis HAD recorded "Just Like a Woman" http://www.examiner.com/article/the-night-bob-dylan-offered-otis-redding-his-new-song-just-like-a-woman
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 4:37pm Ted:

Oh wow. I've got a good version coming up in my next set that maybe you haven't heard.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:40pm Pedro:

Got Elvis doing "Tomorrow is a Long Time"?
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 4:41pm Ted:

No, was gonna play it by ran out of tunes.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah I wish Otis had recorded that too!
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, I think that announcer at the beginning was BBC veteran Brian Matthew. Talking faster than I've heard him before! A lot of BBC sessions feature his voice.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:52pm Bruce:

Thanks, Ted, for picking one of extremely few "good ones" off of CHIMES OF FREEDOM.
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 4:54pm Ted:

Yeah, I hadn't heard it til yestwerday. Slim pickings there.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:54pm jessica:

YAY!!! THE MELCH!!! Love that record and have never heard it on the radio. Thanks for playing it. Made my day.
Avatar Thu. 5/24/12 4:57pm Ted:

Sure thing. It's a great and weird record.
  Thu. 5/24/12 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah Van Morrison! No way for him to screw up a cover, as long as he does it in his own style.
  Thu. 5/24/12 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Happy Birthday Bob!
Thanks for the great tunes Ted!
