A James Mac Murtry cover, exhumed from old (1990) analog 2-track cassette. Sound, guitar playing and singing are rather rude, hiss everywhere, sorry, very low quality...But this is the younger me, trying to record on a 10 $ mic and 50 $ jap guitar.

This is just a clin d'oeil to the great jtkattner, Mc Murtry fan too, for those late night Icomp chats, talking about some fine songwriters...

Ahhh, those late night chats with jtkattner and Dylan.... they lead to such great musical endeavors.

This song stands as an example that it's not the equipment you use, but how you use it.

Sensational... not sure why Dylan isn't an international singing star (well, he certainly is here).

Awesome tune for you, this has always been my favorite McMurtry song. Would love to hear you do Angeline with the same yearning pace, or Cold Missouri Waters. Your voice had a lot of miles on it at twenty! The other thing I notice on this one, and on all your covers, is that you obviously have a great appreciation for the lyrics and you find a way to get juice from the lemon that even the original vocalist sometimes leaves in there. Love it!

Peace,
Paul

Great re-work from lesser equipment. Great sound and vocals really pull at the heart strings. Personally, I think its better than a lot of commercial music coming out lately. Great job!

It seems like "the younger you, trying to record on a 10 $ mic and 50 $ jap guitar" did a very fine job. It sounds like a very heartfelt and straightforward rendition. Great singing.

Dylan, you are truly a fine singer. This song is a perfect example of what makes you so great. You have a very honest, respectable delivery for the songs you sing, and any songwriter would be proud to hear your voice singing one of their songs. BRAVO..

Ah nice. I don't know the original either.
I just like the delicacy in the vocal. It;s strong and tentative at the same time. Well sung, sir!

Thank you very much everyone...This songwriter, James Mc Murtry, is one of the best ones...

I realize now that i'm using Garage Band as a simple recorder with a drum machine included...Nothing has really changed, its just a bit easier !

Gilles hit the nail on the head. As someone who relies so heavily on studio gizmos and complex synths, I'm very impressed at how great of a song you created from almost nothing.
I think I've complimented your voice before, but let me renew those compliments. Nice job.
By the way, that's a really cool picture that goes along it with it.

Wonderful - most of what needs to be said has been said here but as a fan of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen I will now go seek out more James Mac Murty... and more Dylan. Great performance.
