KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are at Hansa Studios Berlin in the winter of 1984 for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds version of Bob Dylan's "Wanted Man", released on "The First Born Is Dead" LP on Mute in 1985...
"Wanted Man was first recorded by Johnny Cash for the soundtrack of the never mentioned 1970 movie "Little Fauss and Big Halsy". Evidently, Dylan gave Cave permission to change some of the lyrics, but being as Bob does that all the time, I couldn't see him upset if they hadn't asked. I'm not a fan of all Cave's work, but he sure nailed this one - taking down Johnny Cash is no mean feat ! In the early 1980s, Cave often seemed to be the only other person in the cinema when I would go and see late period Elvis concert movies in West London." - KV
