Dylan Cover # 392 Roger Daltrey & Wilko Johnson "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltrey performing "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" 

Thoughts on Original:
(From the first time in this series we tackled a cover of this song)
A rambling transitional tune from Dylan as he moved from folk to his rock phase backed by The Hawks and push that wild thin mercury sound which Dylan was just starting to dabble with. Perhaps because of it's rarity, not appearing on any official album it is always a joy to listen to when it pops up, but there are better tracks in this vein such as the unfinished "She's Your Lover Now" but that is a whole separate post....


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We are celebrating The Who all month in our Masters series. They are one of RtBE's all-time favorites. That covers half of this duo with Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson did some cool stuff with Dr. Feelgood, but those guys don't make our Masters series.

Thoughts on Cover:
A pumped up rollicking version with Daltery's stout vocals, a shaking tambourine and jangle. A lot like the original in the end, a fairly straight ahead cover.
