DYLAN COVERS # 182 Bettye LaVette - Everything is Broken/Unbelievable


'Kill that beast and feed that swine'

 
BETTYE LAVETTE - Everything is Broken (2012)

Here are two covers by Bettye LaVette who has been on the go since the sixties. It is a bit strange she has only recently found a bit of fame as she has a fantastic soul voice. Her new album and her previous album have both contained Dylan covers and both are definitely worth your time.

The first take is Everything is Broken and is from her album Thankful N' Thoughtful (2012).

The second one Unbelievable, not a common Dylan cover by any means. Do you know which album it comes from?. Of course you do!, or you would not be reading this. It is from the, shall we say 'patchy' Under The Red Sky (1992). You can find this on her excellent new album Worthy (2015).

You know me, I particularly like it when the context of a cover is completely changed, as it is with these. Two chugging rockers become slow and soulful. Very good indeed.
