[Listen] The Walkmen Cover Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash

I'll let you into a secret. I say secret if you know me personally it isn't that much of a secret, but I'm a big Bob Dylan fan. This may only be lightly linked to Bobby D but I'm not complaining. The Walkmen recently visited KEXP and laid down some raspy covers of Johnny Cash however one of the tracks was actually a cover that Johnny had done of Bob, so you see the loose link to Mr Zimmerman. 

The tracks they performed were "Wanted Man" which was originally Dylan's along with "Mr. Lonesome" and "Darlin’ Companion". Interestingly "Darlin’ Companion" was originally recorded by the Lovin’ Spoonful. So the Johnny Cash covers session featured just two original Cash scores. Along with the aforementioned tracks The Walkmen also laid down a cover of Dominic Behan’s "The Auld Triangle". Check out all the tracks below via our good friends over at One Thirty BPM.
