Tomorrow is a Long Time – Bob Dylan
This is almost a demo of a demo. I took part in a Bob Dylan tribute concert a while ago and had to pick two songs to perform. My choices were a bit obscure but they’re two of my favourites from his back catalogue; ‘Tomorrow is a Long Time’ and ‘He Was a Friend of Mine’. I asked my friend, and landlord at the time, Chris Corney (of Chris Corney Productions fame) to play some lap steel on the song so I recorded this demo straight through my laptop microphone for him to hear the structure. It’s really rough sounding but it reminds me of the old Nick Drake bootlegs I used to listen to as a teenager, and I think that may have been where I first heard the song too.
