MUSICAL GUEST: CHARLIE DANIELS and spotlighting music from “Off The Grid: Doin’ It Dylan” by The Charlie Daniels Band
Tonight’s “Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges” will be of great interest for both Bob Dylan fans and those of Southern rock stalwart CHARLIE DANIELS as the music spotlighted during this program is from “Off The Grid: Doin’ It Dylan” the new tribute album recorded by The Charlie Daniels Band.
Not only does this show include half of the 10 song collection of familiar Dylan tunes customized by Daniels and his stellar group, but it also includes a great interview with Daniels about the making of the “Doin’ It Dylan” album and what it was like for a very young Charlie to actually be in the studio making albums WITH Bob Dylan during the songwriter’s late ‘60s creative peak?
During this program Charlie Daniels shares memories of how his early career got a solid boost from being asked to play guitar on three consecutive Dylan albums — “Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait and New Morning. “It really was a magical connection,” says Daniels.
