Don’t Think Twice


The Onset of DAT recording and other digital breakthroughs in the late 80’s / early 90’s breathed new life into a whole slew of my teenage heroes. First to get my attention were Niel Young and Eric Clapton, both gentlemen tearing it up at Bobfest in 1993. Performers from all walks of the music industry participated, but, for me, the absolute highlight is Clapton’s re-arrangement of Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”. (Smokin’ Blues)

The second video is “My Back Pages” featuring the vocals of Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton,Bob Dylan & George Harrison. (Best Rock Performance – 1993)

This was Grammy nominated for “Best Rock Performance of 1993 by a duo or group”.

Niel Young( who premiered his now familiar rendition of “All Along the Watchtower”) and Eric Clapton really came back with a vengeance in the 90’s, along with another of my all-time favorites which I’ll talk about in a future post.
