david coverversions: absolutely sweet marie

full of desire with lines like "well, i got the fever down in my pockets", bob dylan's 'absolutely sweet marie' hasn't been given that many official takes, but the ones out there are worth tracking down. jason & the scorchers summon up the honkytonk gods and a bit of the stones' swagger for their take first released on the 'fervor' ep, their first release. they re-recorded it for their 2001 double album 'wildfires + misfires: two decades of outtakes and rarities'. for their 1979 record 'jumpin' in the night' the flamin groovies' gave a spectacular garage take. george harrison also tried this song out for 'the 30th anniversary concert celebration' in honor of bob dylan's 30 years as a recording artist. many people gave many sweet takes for this concert and the double album is totally worth tracking down, if only for neil young's 'all along the watchtower'...
