DYLAN COVERS #69 Max Romeo/Lord Creator - Blowin' in the Wind

Maxi baby

 
MAX ROMEO - Blowin' in the Wind(1969)

I think it is about time I had some more Reggae/Calypso so I have chosen two different versions of Blowin' in the Wind,  first up is by Max Romeo probably best known for his track  'Wet Dream'. It was first released (no pun intended) as a single in 1969, but can still be found on the album Wet Dream : The Best of Max Romeo(2004).

The second take is by the Lord Creator famously know for his brilliant Kingston Town and was released on a Calypso Album called Jamaica Time way back in 1964.

Both are not that bad at all.

I don't know how much ganja old Max was smoking back in '69 but he doesn't seem too sure of the lyrics, does he? Nice version all the same.

I like Lord Creator's version even more. Pretty smooooth! Nice.
