This song was my first upload more than one year ago, deleted since then. And first try on Garage Band too. Someone left me a comment saying "that snare is perfect". His name was jkane.

So here is some hopefully better mix. There's still some bugs and things missing (a proper solo), but i love this song (i mean the song itself, not my version!). Written by Steve Wynn (on the album "Fluorescent"), ex-Dream Syndicate leader and great songwriter.

Fantastic, Dylan.
Great song dude.
Sounds live.

Yeah! the snare is great!
I was in a band and our drummer had a similar sounding kit.
It made you feel secure,knowing that steady snare held it all together for us.

Seems like yesterday Dylan. That drum still works. Looking back over your catalogue of music, it's been a delight to see your songs get better and sound more professional. It's that 'thing' where it sounds easy to do but in reality only you can pull off this groove. Today, I'll be wearing black...

I liked your original version quite a bit. I really love this one. You sound a lot like Mark Knopofler at times. I really like the rhythm guitar in there. It really adds the necessary flourishes to really make the whole piece flow as one. Drums are awesome. And your singing is wonderful. Good job!

Great song and excellent separation on all the parts and instruments. Everything sounds good to these tin ears, especially that Knopfler-esque voice. I'll have to check out the original!

You had me at "Hello"...well the drum intro, anyway. You are the next Johnny Cash, Dylan. Keep wearing black. Dang, I love this tune. Great songwriting by Wynn and your deep voice is like a freight train across the midnight landscape...barrelling on to some furtive purpose in a distant land.

Have this fear that someday the Labels are going to come and steal you away from us...

Just excellent. Would have never known it was a cover, you make every song yours.

And one bad*** snare drum...

Each song you release has soul and honesty. This cover is absolutely great. I saw Steve Wynn perform with Miracle 3 last year, it was a brilliant show. I'm sure you could have been there on stage too...

That Snare is Perfect!
I don't think I heard this before.
Glad you reposted it.
I'm downloading it into my iPod before it vanishes again.
I always enjoy your compositions Dylan.

Realy enjoying this one, Dylan.
Sometimes going back to old material and giving it a new voice can work wonders. Can you post a version with just the snare track?

Listening to your tunes, even covers, is always a great pleasure and a fine moment, Dylan. Sad or funny, rockers or ballads, folk, blues, rock : you're surprising me anytime...Congratulations !
