DYLAN COVERS #147 Chris Farlowe - Baby Blue/Watching the River Flow

'You can't come back and be the first in line'

 
CHRIS FARLOWE - It's all over now Baby Blue

I have always had a soft spot for Chris Farlowe ever since Out of Time way back in the sixties. He is an honest performer with an honest voice. I saw him once supporting Van Morrison at the Albert Hall and he in my opinion blew Van away. Van's voice was not at it's best that night.

Anyway here are two covers by Chris, the first Is It's all over now Baby Blue and can be found on his album Out of Time : The Immediate Anthology (2000).

The second selection is a song he has covered quite frequently. He has a studion version on his album Lonesome Road (1995).....but this great live rendition is from a concert in Bremen in 1985. It can be found on the album Bursting over Bremen : Live 1985 and it is with the Thunderbirds

Of these two I particularly enjoyed 'Baby Blue', with its interesting background vocal arrangement.

Chris Farlowe was and remains a great singer. 'Baby Blue' is the winner here.
