DYLAN COVERS # 45 - JJ CALE - On the Road Again/Walk out in the Rain

J.J. and the CAT

J,J. CALE & CHRISTINE LAKELAND - On the Road Again



J,J. CALE & CHRISTINE LAKELAND - Walk out in the Rain

These two tracks are taken from a Live album 'The Old Town Bar And Grill, Eureka CA.(11/02/83)  'On the road Again'  is  from 'Brining it all back Home'. The vocal action is done by Christine.

I believe that the first side of BIABH would have been improved if 'On the Road' , 'Bob Dylan's 115th dream'  and 'Outlaw Blues' were replace by the Outtakes 'Farewell Angelina' and 'I'll keep it with Mine' and 'If you gotta go'.  In my mind with the inclusion of these three tracks, BIABH would have the same lofty status as 'Highway 61 Revisited' and 'Blonde on Blonde'. Although OK these three tracks are the weak links on BIABH .


WHAT DO YOU THINK ?

Walk out in the Rain is an outtake from Street Legal. It was actually co-written with Helena Springs one of his backing singers. It was also recorded by Eric Clapton on his album 'Backless'(1996). I have not been able to find a Dylan version of this. Can anybody help?

I agree, Old Pa, but I would probably like to keep '115th Dream' in because it is pretty funny. 'Farewell Angelina' and 'I'll Keep It With Mine' are brilliant songs that should be considered among the best of Dylan's 60's out-put.

I don't know but you'd be pretty hard pushed to find a better place to have a burger, washed down with a few beers and some JJ Cale though.
