DYLAN COVERS - #116 Wilko Johnson - Please Crawl from Your Window/Highway 61


TUNE DOCTOR FEELGOOD

 
WILKO JOHNSON - Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window (1980)

Wilko Johnson is probably more famous for his part in the great British Pub Rock Band  Dr Feelgood  but he also had a  long and succsessful solo career too. I was very pleased to find five Dylan Covers by Wilko.

Here is the first of two, it is a take on  Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window  and can be found on the Japanese released LP  Ice on the Motorway (1980). The second is  Highway 61 Revisited  and that one is just tailor made for Mr Johnson. This one can be found on the CD Solid Senders (1978)

More Dr Feelgood and Wilko J covers to follow.

God bless Wilko. As you say Old Pa, 'Highway 61' is right up his street, but I was particularly impressed with 'Crawl Out', which I'd not heard before, a song you can just tell he loves from his performance. Loved it.

All love goes out to Wilko - a true musical hero and all round good guy. God bless, man. Both covers excellent.
