The White Stripes + Bob Dylan: The White Album


Chief amongst the virtues of Jack White was his reverence for so much of the best that had gone before him. And chief amongst his revered elders was none other than Mr. Bob Dylan. (more rare White Stripes here.)



Fortunately, White often interpreted some of the less beat-to-death items of the Dylan catalog, whether it was "Lovesick" , "Outlaw Blues", "One More Cup of Coffee or "Meet Me in the Morning".



As the art indicates, this collection of Dylan (and Dylan-related) live cover songs was expertly compiled, annotated and designed by StewART, though I can't yet determine if he ever made a volume two!


Leave us a comment about what you make of Jack White's Dylan obsession.

  2. I think Jack's obsession with Dylan was totally understandable. I would guess that he wish to emulate the best and his willingness to bathe in the river of time that is Dylan's catalog provided first hand experience in how to write a song and if he did his extra-credit homework (which he obviously did) how to re-interpret his own material and re-invent himself as Dylan did.
    I think he learned his lessons well!

    Thanks for the good words for stewArt - they are fitting.

    Great work, man and 400 d/l's in 24 hours is pretty damn near a record here!
    If you want to drop a line here when you're done v. 2 that'd be great but I'll try to keep my eye on Watchtower regardless.
    Thanks again.

  9. Exciting to see this! Thanks. Both Bob and Jack tap the blue root of the Americana tree, so it's fitting younger sings older. I'd like the hear the vice versa too (say, "You're Pretty Good Lookin' for a Girl"?)

    Cheers,

  10. but thanks for this download! Perish the Stripes... but they left behind a great body of tunes... and played a role in semi-rescuing rock and roll from banal tendencies at the turn of the century

  11. When something goes musically wrong or sad in the world, I turn to Dylan. Therefore, this is a fitting post. I can't wait to hear it!
