ROD STEWART - The Groom's still Waiting at the Alter
Here are a couple of Rod Stewart tracks covering Dylan. Rod has a great History of recording Dylan which goes back to his days with the Faces and even before that. Rod always had one cover of a Dylan song on all his early solo albums and he made a pretty good job of them. I have selected two here which are I suppose not so well know, as they are not on a normal release album. This version of 'Groom' is taken from a 4 CD Set called 'Sessions' and is an alternate take from the version on the album of rare recordings on the album know as the 'lost album' 'Once in a Blue Moon' released in 2009. This also contains a 19 minute Studio Jam of 'Groom' . I have to say that I have as yet not heard these versions. But I have ordered the CD.
The version of 'Wheels on Fire' can also be found on 'Sessions' and if you like Rod then this is a must. There are a few other alternative Dylan covers there as well.
