DYLAN COVERS # 175 Fairfield Four/Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir - Are You Ready

Hallelujah ! Are you ready for Armageddon?


FAIRFIELD FOUR - Are You Ready (2003)

How about some Gospel ? I saw Dylan during his Gospel Phase in London 1981. It was one of the best Bob concerts I have seen.

Here are two different takes on Are You Ready from Saved (1980). The first one is by the Fairfield Four and you will find it on Gotta Serve Somebody: Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan (2003). The second one is by the Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir singing the Gospel Songs of Dylan. I believe it was in Melbourne in 2011.  If you like this one there are many more from the same concert available to watch on You tube.

Are you Ready for this Folks?

Bob was certainly in good voice during that period. I saw Dylan in 1981 as well - Earls court Old Pa? I wonder how many times we've been at the same gig over the years?
I like both of these approaches to 'Are You Ready', stripped back accapella and the full blown gospel choir. Nice.
