It’s great, isn’t it?  But in that weird way that makes the first time you heard a song stick as the original, I’ll always associate this with the Whitlams.  I was rolling north on the Bruce Highway in Australia when I first heard it:

    I always associated Tangled Up in Blue with the Whitlams too. I was pretty ambivalent to Bob Dylan back then.

    That first Living End CD is still a staple of my lawn mowing music rotation (not a bad thing – but it does only include music that can be played loud).
