DYLAN COVERS #93 Steel Pulse - George Jackson/Matumbi - The Man in Me


Nice pose, shame about the Hair

 
STEEL PULSE - George Jackson (2004)

Lets have some more Dylan Reggae covers. This time I am featuring two British bands. The first is by Steel Pulse and this cover of George Jackson was on their album African Holocaust (2004). It also featured another song (not by Dylan) about George Jackson.

I remember buying the single in 1972 and was quite excited at the time that Dylan seemed to have got back some of the fire that we had not heard for a very long time. For thoses who do not know the single release contained two versions of the song, the acoustic version and the Big Band version.

Many Roads to Cross

 
MATUMBI - The Man in Me (1976)

Matumbi's version of  The Man in Me was the biggest-selling UK reggae single in 1976. So what about that then?

I don't know either originals but as tracks in their own right, I really enjoyed the Matumbi one.
