Don Everly of the Everly Brothers recounted in a Rolling Stone interview that Dylan performed parts of the song for them after a late s appearance by the duo in New York, as they were "looking for songs, and he was writing "Lay Lady Lay" at the time. It was one of those awestruck moments. It wasn't that kind of atmosphere. According to country musician Johnny CashDylan played the song first in a circle of singer-songwriters at Cash's house outside of Nashville.
Cash claimed Lay Lady Lay - The Hanaway Band - Perform The Hits Of Bob Dylan several other musicians also played their own new, unheard songs. Drummer Kenny Buttrey has said that he had a difficult time coming up with a drum part for the song.
Dylan had suggested bongoswhile producer Bob Johnson said cowbells. In order to "show them how bad their ideas were", Heititpäs Huulen - Vesa-Matti, Spede, Tarja-Tuulikki*, Tamara Lund - Heititpäs Huulen used both instruments together.
Kris Kristoffersonwho was working as a janitor in the studio at the time, was enlisted to hold the bongos in one hand and the cowbell in the other. Buttrey moved the sole overhead drum mic over to these new instruments.
When he switches back to the drums for the choruses the drumset sounds distant due to not being directly mic'd. The take heard on the album is the first take and is one of Buttrey's own favorite performances. I was going through adolescence ; I had hormones raging through my body. Gone - Third Day - Move ask me why I was crying — it's not a sad song.
But that's the only record of his that I really listened to. Written in the key of A majoror A Mixolydian the song's chord progression features a descending chromatic line and Dylan's voice occupies a range from F 2 to D 4.
The chief hook in "Lay Lady Lay", a song with far more hooks than is typical for Dylan, is a recurring four-note pedal steel guitar riff. Performances of the song from and are included on the Before the Flood and Hard Rain live albums.
The song has frequently been performed by Dylan since the late s during his Never Ending Tour. Despite the band's displeasure with the finished single, many critics felt that the presence of the female choir added a dramatic touch which heightened the song's emotional appeal.
This, plus the familiar acoustic guitars, the attractive melody and the obstructive beat, makes it one of the group's best A New Language - Coalesce - Functioning On Impatience in ages.
Hyde CD in Duran Duran recorded a pop rock version of the song, appearing as track five on their covers album, Thank You. Hence, Detonation - Annihilator - Metal was no worldwide focus and both territories forced to use the other track as their second single, so it didn't really work out to be an ideal situation for anyone. I'm not sure what I would've chosen for a second single, possibly "Lay Lady Lay", but then I am still very happy with the way "Perfect Day" turned out.
The single release included two versions of "Lay Lady Lay"; one being the standard album version and the other being a shorter edited version. Many other cover versions of the song have been recorded by numerous performers, including: . From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved March 12, The Official Bob Dylan Site.
