Ray LaMontagne Covers Bob Dylan's 'The Man in Me'

The song, off Dylan's 'New Morning,' may be better known from 'The Big Lebowski'

November 1, 2010 5:37 PM ET

Ray LaMontagne has been covering Bob Dylan's "The Man in Me" during live shows for some time, so in celebration of tomorrow's launch of his co-headlining tour with Levon Helm, we're delighted to premiere this studio version of the track (originally from Dylan's New Morning LP, but perhaps better known from The Big Lebowski). On this version, recorded in New York in July, Ray and his Pariah Dogs give the track a slow groove in keeping with their latest LP, God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise .

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
