It’s 1969 and Dylan is not doing the same as everyone else – he’s beating his own path to Nashville and will cut an album that is unique within his body of work – it’s country. Everyone else may be blazing a psychedelic path – but Bob Dylan had a set of songs he wanted to record and he was studio ready. The result was ‘Nashville Skyline‘, and that preparedness meant there weren’t many takes or variations on the songs – this time they were not “studio evolved“.
So this alternate take on Dylan’s tenderest love song ‘Lay, Lady, Lay‘ is not so different from the song we already know – but it’s different some and well worth the listen.
