Where Are You Tonight, Broccoli




The Original


Bob Dylan:


THE CLASH of Cover Tunes


George Harrison vs. Jason & The Scorchers vs. Niedecken
George Harrison:

George Harrison, 18 years removed from his last U.S. concert, performs Absolutely Sweet Marie at Bob Dylan’s 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration (or as Neil succinctly put it, “Bob-Fest”).

Jason & The Scorchers:



Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

    From the moment I heard Jason and the Scorchers sing this song on WHFS in 1983 I loved it. Went out and bought the record the next day. I still like it better than Dylan’s original.

    I remember looking at the list of performers for the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Celebration and being amazed. Perhaps equally amazing is the fact that, all these years later, I’ve still yet to sit down and watch or listen to the entire CD/DVD. So I don’t remember hearing that version by George Harrison. Better than expected.

    I’m a huge fan of Jason and the Scorchers and Jason Ringenberg’s solo material, so they get the vote.
