We begin our final chapter with another interpretation of the song we ended the last chapter with.
Great songs tend to be covered by other artists, and this one has been done at least by the Chambers Brothers, a weird but thoroughly enjoyable version by the Vanilla Fudge and the one I have chosen.
There is just something about the interplay of guitar and voice that does it for me.
Martin Luther King won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.
That same year, Bob Dylan released HIS own version of a song we have already played twice.
I felt I would be cheating you if I didn't play the serious, poetic, brilliant use of words contained in Dylan's epic, talking about all the ways we are NOT free!
Then the sad account of the King assassination- and I do remember thinking, "Man, what is going on here? You disagree with someone, so you shoot them"?
And that will begin our grand finale.
To close it all out, I have 3 of the best songs ever that speak to all of Mankind.
Kindly listen to the words- you will be better for it.
Happy Birthday, Martin!
I always liked your non-violent style.
There are radical crazies that could learn from that.
