Old Crow Medicine Show Celebrate 50 Years of ‘Blonde On Blonde’
April 28, 2017
Legendary Nashville road band, Old Crow Medicine Show today release their live version of Bob Dylan’s seminal double album, ‘Blonde On Blonde’.
Recorded live at Nashville’s CMA theatre, all 14 tracks from Dylan’s original masterpiece were reinterpreted by the platinum-selling, two time Grammy winning roots band in front of a rapturous audience.
Ketch Secor, primary vocalist of Old Crow Medicine Show had this to say:
“Fifty years is a long time for a place like Nashville, Tennessee. Time rolls on slowly around here like flotsam and jetsam in the muddy Cumberland River. But certain things have accelerated the pace of our city. And certain people have sent the hands of the clock spinning. Bob Dylan is the greatest of these time – bending, paradigm-shifting Nashville cats.
“By deciding to record his newly found rock ‘n’ roll voice in 1966 Nashville, Bob swung the gates of Country music wide open; so wide in fact that 50 years later there was still enough of a crack left for Old Crow Medicine Show to sneak its banjos and fiddles through the gates with string band swagger.”
