DYLAN COVERS #107 Mavis Staples/Pops Staples - Gotta Serve Somebody


A Bobby Ex!

 
MAVIS STAPLES and JOHNNY LANG - Gotta Serve Somebody

Here a couple of excellent takes on Dylan's Christian classic Gotta Serve Somebody.  The first one is taken from a the Points of light Tribute Concert in Washington DC, 21 March 2011. Close your eyes around 28 seconds,  if you don't want to get a horrible fright.

The second version is taken from Later with Jools Holland, 11 July 1994,  Pops is accompanied by Carleen Anderson & her BandPops also did a studio take of the track on his album Father, Father (1994) ,

Both versions are definitely worth a listen . Happy birthday to Mavis by the way, she was 74 on Wednesday.

Two very nice readings. Pity about some of the riff-raff in Mavis's audience. Where are the bouncers when you need them?
