You can’t go wrong with a choice Bob Dylan cover. Case in point: blues-rock trio the Record Company offering a spirited rendition of Dylan’s 1965 Bringing It All Back Home classic “Subterranean Homesick Blues.”
The Los Angeles-based trio performed an acoustic cover of the tune as part of their set at Hollywood’s Fonda Theatre on June 17th. Rather than adopting Dylan’s conversational twang, lead singer Chris Vos opts for a bluesier, more soulful take on the tune, taking occasional breaks to riff on the harmonica while his bandmates jam on keys and guitar.
The same evening, the band also covered the Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want,” albeit with a little less rapping than the original.
The Record Company released their debut album, Give It Back to You, in 2016. More recently, they released a music video for the vinyl-only track “Baby I’m Broken” in late spring. They’re currently on tour through the end of October, with their next stop taking place June 22nd in Cincinnati.
