DYLAN COVERS #133 Eric Bibb - The Times they are a Changin'/Just Like a Woman/Buckets of Rain

ERIC BIBB - The Times They are a Changin' (2012)

I had never heard of Eric Bibb when a great friend of mine who is no longer with us said he had a spare ticket for an concert in Reading at a very small venue. I was knocked out by Eric and immediately bought several of his albums after the concert. He was there selling them as you left the venue. Well a guys got to make a living.

I have followed him ever since and I am still amazed that he has not gained the recognition that he richly deserves.

Here is Eric doing three great covers of Bob in his relaxed laid back style. Great stuff.

Just Like a Woman is taken from the album Blues on Blonde on Blonde (2003) and the take of The Times They are a Changin' is from his album Deeper in the Well (2012). Finally we have Buckets of Rain which is just about perfect for Mr Bibb and this is taken from his Diamomd Days album 2006.
Check Eric out if you are not familiar. You will spend your time well.

I've seen Mr Bibb in concert a couple of times, but funnily enough I don't remember him performing a Dylan song on either occasion. He does a good, solid job on all three of these versions though.
