Dylan Covers - Vol. Two

Fairpoint Convention - Unhalfbricking (1969)

Fairpoint Convention - Si Tu Dois Partir - Buy

Fairpoint Convention - Million Dollar Bash - Buy

Bob Dylan - Million Dollar Bash [live] - Info

Fairpoint Convention were the number one British folk rock band at the end of the 60s. They covered a few Dylan songs including Jack O'Diamonds, I'll Keep It With Mine and Percy's Song. The following tracks were taken from their 1969 Unhalfbricking longplayer.

The first one is a great French cover version of If You Gotta Go, Go Now called Si Tu Dois Partir (the Dylan version was released in 1985 on Biograph). The second track is a cover of Million Dollar Bash. Dylan's original version of that song was released on The Basement Tapes in 1975 and it took 30 years before he finally played it live on stage. This performance (London, November 21 2005) is today's bonus track. Hope you enjoy it. Please leave a comment.

All the best &
have a great week!
