Country Gentlemen - Baby Blue

Country Gentlemen - Baby Blue (Rebel F-265. 1966)
There's a touch of Dylan running through today's posts.....

The Country Gentlemen were a traditional bluegrass band, not unlike the Dillards. While the Dillards embraced folk-rock with open arms, producing some of the finest folk-rocking sounds of the day, The Country Gentlemen merly dipped their toes in the water.

Anyone who was anyone had at least one Dylan song in their reportoire back in the 60's, and the Country Gentlemen were no excpetion. One of the results of the excursion into folk-rock is this cover of the Dylan classic, which has some nice restrained bluegrass picking.

Flip side is the more traditional bluegrass number "Spanish two step".
