|It's not my problem!|
Lucinda Williams version of 'Positively 4th Street' is up there with my favourite takes of this iconic song. This first one is from a Covers album "In Their Own Words", released in 1994. Her voice is just perfect for this slowed down version! There seems to be a resigned sadness to it all. It is a different feel from the angry sneer screaming out Dylan's original. This is great stuff!.I love it.
Whats my favourite Dylan Cover?... well this is big time up there....get me out of here quick! before I commit.!!!!
Version 2 is taken from the excellent compilation Album 'The Village' (2009) there are some really good versions of Bob songs there, as well as other good covers. Of the two version I will give the nod to the first one, but they are both pretty dam good. It's a tough call. What's your favourite.
'I Love Lucy'
