This Wheel's On Fire



Let's have a bit of British Psychedelia. This Wheel's On Fire has been going round and round my head recently, I first heard it in it's original form from the Basement Tapes as a teenager when I used to borrow a mate's dad's Dylan albums but I have always preferred the effects laden version by Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and the Trinity, it's not the kind of thing I would want to listen to if tripping as it has always seemed a bit malevolent to me. The less said about Kylie's recent attempt to cover this the better., suffice to say avoiding it at all costs would be the best course of action.

I was totally unaware that Kylie had covered 'This Wheel's On Fire' until now and have thus, involuntarily, avoided it at all costs. I am very happy to allow this situation to continue.

I've just played Kylie's version. Bland vocal, apalling backing music.

That picture would do your head in if you were tripping

Ooo...Dear, Dear Kylie...slight miss to the side sweetie darling...you will be forgiven in time though... Givie me the Banshee's menacing version over ALL comers any day...

Was about to say....

(1) disn't know Kylie had covered it. If I bump into fair enough, but I won't seek it out.

(2) I prefer the Banshees take on it. Echorich again uses the right word. Menacing
