DYLAN COVERS #32 - Calexico - '4th Time Round' / 'Billy' (Main Theme)


CALEXICO - 4th Time Round

This is taken from a concert in Karlsruhe, Germany on the 9th July 2003. Calexico are one of my favourite bands and are no strangers to covering Dylan. They provided a major contribution to the superb soundtrack album for the 'I'm Not There' film. In fact the second cover is from the live 'I'm Not There' concert which took place on the 7th November 2007 at the Beacon theatre in New York. It is excellent and with a little bit of searching is available online.  4th Time Round of course comes from Blonde on Blonde and 'Billy' is the title track from the soundtrack of Billy the Kid featuring Kris Kristofferson and Dylan himself. A must see.

Both of these are pretty much custom built for Calexico. '4th Time Around' is one of my favourite Dylan songs (how I wish he'd dig it our again). Nice version but they must remember the words properly! ;)

And their great take on Billy would fit perfectly into the movie. (I couldn't find any errors with the lyrics on this one)

Nice tracks, Dylan given the Calexico treatment.
