Sunday night is...Baby, Please Don't Go

Big Bill Broonzy, 1952

Them, with Van Morrison, 1964 (Keith Fordyce introducing)

If translation is the cover version, then Big Joe Williams, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mose Allison, Van Morrison and uncle Bob Dylan and all have translated to satisfaction. The bottom version? Oh Bottom, thou art translated, as Jan Kott joked.


Some discussion of today's session on the rebirth of the author in the comments column of yesterday's post. Nice contributions.
