Big Brass Bed.

5

If you don’t like Bob Dylan, I would be willing to guess it isn’t for lack of  a lyrical genius, but it probably has more to do with his some what “unconventional” voice. While, I am not one of those people (i <3 him), I know that they exist, and today’s track goes out to all those sort-of fans. It’s a beautifully sweet cover of Lay Lady Lay by Magnet and Gemma Hayes. Magnet, aka Even Johansen, has a soulful croon, as does the duets more sassy counterpart…that would be the cool and talented Hayes. The music on this version is bigger than on Dylan’s original, but to me it’s the magnetism that both singers bring to the table that really does this cover justice. The duo’s expressive rendition only emphasizes the perfect tenderness of these  lyrics and when it comes down to it, Dylan’s genius is still what makes this track’s wheels go round.

LISTEN TO IT!
