Saturday Matinee – The Manfred Mann, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin & Sonny Boy Williamson Connection


Manfred Mann sings Dylan’s “Just Like A Woman.”

Bob Dylan sings Memphis Minnie‘s & Kansas Joe McCoy‘s “When The Levee Breaks,” but for now,  let’s say it’s a Led Zeppelin cover.

Led Zeppelin rips off  Sonny Boy Williamson‘s “Bring It On Home,” at least for a minute or so and for a bit at the end.

“Nine Below Zero” by Sonny Boy Williamson with Otis Spann, and they didn’t rip off anyone.

Have a great weekend folks.

    Sigh! Dylan was, is and always will be THE man. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Leeuna– Would that be the RocknRoll Dylan, the Army Dylan, the Sailing Dyan, the Surfing Dylan or the Fat Hawaiian Dylan?
    Oop. That would have been Elvis. Nevermind.
    “Idiot Wind” is my Bob favorite.

    Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it’s nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. Thanks. 🙂

    Ken– If your comment got eaten, it’s because it fell into the spambox. Feel free to repost your comment.
