London-based Aussie songstress and ex-frontwoman of Bridezilla, Holiday Sidewinder joins me for a chat about one of Bob Dylan’s underappreciated classics - 1973’s ‘Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid’, the soundtrack to the film of the same name.
What happens when rock’s most famous lyricist makes a largely instrumental album? Why does legendary R&B organist Booker T play bass on the album? What did Holiday steal from Dylan when she met him backstage? How does the record fit in with Bob’s Nashville period? Why did Holiday play this album at a funeral she was musical directing?
Plus, Holiday and I close the episode with a short acoustic rendition of the album’s most famous song 'Knockin On Heaven’s Door’.
