“I’ve Got Dreams to Remember”  (Otis Redding).

 

Covering any Otis Redding song is risky business, but I think Toots Hibbert (of Toots & The Maytals) did a great job. The album is “Toots In Memphis”. Kind of like Reggae meets Memphis soul.

Thank-you very much; that’s very kind. I think it was from his Running on Empty CD. My wife and I have seen him live twice. Good stuff.

Great choice. It's a live cut, starts with Song for the Roadies, then transitions to Stay.
It's a fabulous live cut, that had a new life with Jackson Browne. That band that backed
him on the road those years was amazing too . Lee Sklaar/bass, Russ Kunkel/drums,
and the great David Lindley on guitar. Jackson at the height of his powers. I absolutely
commend your choice as great!!!

Chris Isaak also had a nice cover version of Solitary Man by Neil Diamond.

Nice job by Blackmore. Girl sang well. That's a song that will always be Joan Baez's tune because it something she did for Dylan when they were lovers. Blackmore's version is beautiful. Joan's has the
power of living the moment, emotional attachment.
