DYLAN COVERS #99 Hugues Aufray with Eddie Mitchell/Johnny Halliday - Forever Young/Girl from the North Country


Dylan and Hugues 1964
 
HUGUES AUFRAY with JOHNNY HALLIDAY - Forever Young

Hugues Aufray first did a covers album of Dylan songs way back in 1965 'Hugues Aufray chante Bob Dylan' and would you believe he had a further Covers album in 2009 called  'New Yorker'  and it included many well know French artists from the past 50 years. I have chosen 2 of the great French Rockers from the sixties who are still going strong today. Johnny Halliday and Eddie Michell.

My wife who is French and hates Dylan will have no excuse to-day. She will have to listen to these two.

Viens, ma cherie, ecouter ces fameux rockers francais chanter Monsieur D !

Ce sont des interprétations intéressantes, mais pas vraiment mon sac Old Pa, mais je suis impatient de voir ce que vous avez aligné pour votre centenaire! Que la fête commence!

How come so many women hate Dylan? I have the same problem at home. Well, not 'hate' but just indifference, really. Mind you, these are a bit dodgy, so Old Ma is right on that score.

SB most of the music I like (with a passion) Old Ma does not like. Maybe she should'nt criticise what she don't understand.

Google Translate is a wonderful thing Old Pa. I actually know just enough French to order a beer - i.e. point at a bottle and say 'un'!

Mrs S likes Dylan up to 1966, but is baffled by my love of latter day Bob. I took her to see him in 2005, but sadly it wasn't the greatest of venues or shows and she has sworn never to repeat the experience!

Hey Old Pa, I think you might mean May 4th 2002? I was there too! It was my 50th Dylan show, but first ever 'Subterranean Homesick Blues' and first 'Man of Constant Sorrow' since Hammersmith in 1990. Luckily I was with fellow Dylan fans that day, although I did have to amuse myself wandering around Brighton for a couple of hours while they watched the cup final in the afternoon - happy days.
