Retro Music 6

This is a cover version of a Bob Dylan song, released by the British band Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger and the Trinity in 1968. The amazing voice of Julie, her distinctive look, and the musicianship of Brian Auger made me prefer this version to the Dylan original. Even now, I still find it incredibly powerful to listen to.

Wheels On Fire
Why Don’t You
Tell Me Lies
You Ought To
Wheels On Fire
Why Don’t You Say Goodbye
Well There’s A Light
And There’s A Hope
Come Swing Me Baby
From This Here Rope
I Sold You A Lie
And Prayed That Maybe
Someday You’d Return It
Lord Knows I’ve Earnt It
I Keep Finding Words That Leave You – I Told You I Don’t Mind
Something Tells Me I’m Not Meant To – I Told You I Don’t Mind
I Keep Finding Words That Leave You
Wheels On Fire
Why Don’t You
Tell Me Lies
You Ought To
Wheels On Fire
Why Don’t You Say Goodbye
Well There’s A Light
And There’s A Hope
Come Swing Me Baby
From This Here Rope
I Sold You A Lie
And Preyed That Maybe
Someday You’d Return It
Lord Knows I’ve Earnt It
I Keep Finding Words That Leave You – I Told You I Don’t Mind
Something Tells Me I’m Not Meant To – I Told You I Don’t Mind
I Keep Finding Words That Leave You
Wheels On Fire
Why Don’t You
Tell Me Lies
You Ought To
Wheels On Fire
Why Don’t You Say Goodbye [

  1. Whenever I hear this, I immediately think AbFab. Lots of people have done Dylan better, or more palatable. His story telling and songwriting are never in doubt. His personal style of delivering them is definitely an acquired taste and no one should ever be shamed for cringing at Dylan’s voice. I have a grammy winning friend who did a killer, fall on the floor laughing version of Bob Dylan singing the theme song to Gilligan’s Island.

    1. Everyone else seems to be able to play them, even in America. I have no idea why the clips will not play for you, sorry. Have you tried looking up the tracks on You Tube directly? That might work.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. She has a great voice and powerful delivery. It brings back the angst of those times. It was a turbulent time and yet it didn’t feel as disturbing as modern anger. Maybe when one is older, one is less resilient.

            1. I’d never heard of them till I saw The Last Waltz. I was in Oxfam yesterday and they were playing a track from it. I asked if I could buy it but it was a different album
