A much older more rockin' instrumental.
Link Wray El Toro
The Moonlight Collection Afire 2014
If I play Dick Dale, I might as well play Link Wray, right?

The Great Escape Car Records 2023
I haven't heard the whole album yet, but I'm down with everything Stamey has ever done, so I expect it's all as good as this song is.

A wonderful return from these now former St. Louisians.
Sinead O'Connor Mandinka
Lion and the Cobra Chrysalis Records 1987

Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International Amnesty International 2012
I've always had a soft spot for the songs on Infidels, because we played that album all the time in my first record store job. Costello does a nice job with it here.
Bryan Ferry Gates of Eden
Dylanesque BMG Rights Management (UK) Ltd. 2007
Because it's surrounded by classic after classic, people often forget this Dylan song from Bringing It All Back Home. Bryan Ferry does a nice version.

As Long as I Love Monument/Legacy 1970
She's been doing what she does for a long, long time.
