Dylan Covers: This Wheel's On Fire

Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity: This Wheel's On Fire


This Wheel's On Fire was written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko during the sessions for The Band's 1968 album, Music From Big Pink. Today's cover comes from Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity, whose psychedelia adaptation scored a hit, landing at #5 on the UK singles chart. Fan's of the comedy series Absolutely Fabulous will recognize Driscoll's early 90's remake, which was the show's theme song.

I prefer this to The Band & Dylan versions, I like the trippy flanger effect and the swirling Hammond B3 organ, it's a bit like being on a carousel. Check it out yourself and see what you think.
