The Band & Bob Dylan have today’s almost forgotten track

Today I was thinking of my sister Nadine’s devotion to The Bob, and recalled the day the mail brought an album addressed to her from her friend Jennifer Cochrane in Eccles, in the UK (and yes, we called her Jennifer Eccles)…straight up, I don’t think either of us had ever heard Bob before, but, from that day, I recall Nadine playing the album not just regularly but over and over…to date, I have no idea how many times she’s seen Bob in concert, but I’m pretty sure the number 100 might be close to correct…it’s to the point where Bob has recognised her from the stage and given her an harmonica to take home with her…such devotion to an artist is completely understandable to me, and I applaud her loyalty…this song, originally on that first album, is recreated here by Bob and The Band at The Last Waltz…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
