I haven’t had one of these in a while, but when I heard the news that FSU is disinclined to give Matthew Thomas the release he wants, this tune immediately jumped into my head.
That’s my favorite Byrds’ Dylan cover. Great lyrics, but it’s the sublime harmonies that really make the song for me.
And here’s a bonus version, from “Playboy After Dark”. It’s a few months after Sweetheart of the Rodeo was released, and the band had reconfigured when Hillman and Parsons left to start The Flying Burrito Brothers. Make sure you check out Clarence White’s work on the gee-tar. Man was pure genius.
Gotta love those earnest hipsters trying to figure out the best dance moves to proto-country rock.
