david coverversion: bob dylan vs. neil young vs. heather nova

neil young has blasted motherfuckers for years. i remember seeing him at the h.o.r.d.e festival back in the late ninties, along with kula shaker, beck, and some others probably not really worth remembering. anyways, before that, the only neil young song i knew of was 'rockin' in the free world' and after watching neil rock in the free world, i put 2 and 2 together and figured out that neil young is sweet. for his live album 'weld' from the 'ragged glory' tour, neil and co (crazy horse) gave old bobby's timeless protest shanty 'blowin' in the wind' an almost a capella performance in what seems to be dresden. it is very reminiscent of his guitar work on the soundtrack for the widely hated (but loved by me) 'where the buffalo roam', a movie very loosely based on hunter s thompson. like frida snell previously, i don't know much about this heather nova, but i came across her take of neil's 'like a hurricane' at itunes or something and i dug it. violins dude.

bob dylan - blowin' in the wind
neil young & crazy horse - blowin' in the wind
neil young - like a hurricane
heather nova - like a hurricane

neil young - home on the range

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
