KURT VILE And His Two Daughters Cover ‘MUST BE SANTA’

22 November 2022

Laidback country pop singer-songwriter KURT VILE was invited by Spotify to cover
a Xmas song exclusively for the giant stream platform’s new Christmas compilation playlist.

Vile: I thought it was nice of them to invite me, but I didn’t know if I could pull off a Christmas song! Then my mind jumped to when John Agnello showed me the Bob Dylan version of “Must Be Santa” while we were making the Smoke Ring For My Halo record. Bob Dylan has a wig on, and someone goes flying through a window. All this time, I thought it was Bob Dylan’s song. It’s really catchy, and he makes it his own, as he usually does. I figured if I can do Dylan’s “Must Be Santa,” if that’s not taken, it’s a sign. I gotta be the next chapter in this version of a Bob Dylan song. Then I realized it was actually a classic Christmas song, and was written however long ago, but I still wanted to do it justice the way Bob did. I wanted to be the guy who attempted to pull it off.”

“It feels like a perfect circle, really. I thought I’d do an acoustic version and have my daughters sing backup, but then it turned into more of a weird synth version with their vocals, which is really the hook. I figured Bob wouldn’t hear it, but I still wanted to do it justice, and once I got my daughters singing with me I hoped he would at least like it. Now I know… he loves it. Merry Christmas, Bob Dylan!

Yes, it is Santa, folks.

A Stream Of Love And Respect For Iconic Songsmith And Storyteller BOB DYLAN In Brussels

18 October 2022

BOB DYLAN – 15 Otcober 2022 – Vorst Nationaal, Brussels

A truly unique experience. Why?

1. From his very first vocal on, I knew this would be a GREAT Dylan night (I had
a BAD vocal Dylan experience the last time I saw him in 2015). Self-assured, clear,
and magnetic. We, fans, know that the tone and timbre of his voice have changed,
hoarser and rawer than before, but still so overwhelming.

2. He played the piano all the way throughout the concert. Stylish at times, boogie-woogie at times, melancholic and romantic at times, but always compelling. He sat down behind the piano for the instrumental parts and stood up when he sang, through the microphone on top of the piano, so we could see his head popping up.

3. What a band. Jazzy, bluesy, rock-y, lazy, sentimentally. Whatever
the vibe of the songs was, these guys created a solid gold sound.
Marvelous.

4. Dylan played his last album Rough And Rowdy Ways, released in 2020, in full,
except for the epic 20-minute Murder Most Foul story about the President Kennedy assassination in 1963. One of his best longplayers of the past 25 years, moody and
moony with sepia-colored sonority. Not safety first option with a setlist full of hits,
which he played unrecognizably anyway. Wonderful.

.
5. No arty farty light show. Just some big unchanging shadowy spots, making me feel
like I was in a small smoky bar. Imagine this feel in… a 6000-cap venue. Magnific.

6. It was, as expected and announced, a cell phone-free and seated concert. It created a truly relaxing atmosphere without being surrounded or distressed by all those tiny lights. Can’t remember anymore when I had such a tranquil live experience.

7. The euphoric reaction of the crowd after each and every song and the 10-minute-long standing ovation at the end was heartwarming. So much love and respect for the greatest singer-songwriter ever in my book. Soul-stirring sentiments were all over the place.

8. Dylan’s convincingly sincere ‘thank you everybody‘ reaction
and introduction of the band before the finale surprised
many of us, therefore it felt blissful.

9
. His one and only harmonica fragment came at the end of the
very last song Every Grain Of Sand and got an explosive reception.

10. At 81 Bob Dylan still is a supreme performer and entertainer.

Hail hail! Thank you, Mister Zimmerman.
