Trapper Schoep “On Wisconsin” – Listen

Trapper Schoep has earned himself a co-write credit on this track with none other than Nobel laureate Bob Dylan.  Seems that back in ’61 Bob produced what we might fairly call a minor work, but never completed or recorded it .  Eventually the handwritten lyrics were sold at auction, Schoep saw a photo’ and  decided to complete the song that celebrated his home state.  With permission to co-credit eventually given he, naturally enough, recorded it and produced this slightly Sufjan Stevens-esque track.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
