Your Friday Jam: Spanish Mary

Most folks consider Bob Dylan to be one of the greatest songwriters America, if not the world, has ever produced.  The man was prolific in his work, and wrote a number of songs that he never actually recorded – masterpieces that were destined to never be heard.  Thankfully, in stepped The New Basement Tapes, a group of musicians who decided to band together and let the world hear these previously unrecorded Dylan tracks.  In 2014 Jim James, Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford, Taylor Goldsmith, and Rhiannon Giddens all banded together to perform twenty Dylan songs, and the result is truly spectacular.  Every song on their album, Lost on the River, is worth more than one listen, but the track below might be my favorite.  Enjoy this week’s Friday Jam.

  1. So what you’re saying is, if I provide the toast, you’ll supply the jams?
