The fourth and 23rd of Marling and Dylan

Saturday, 29 June, 2013

The thing about the new Laura Marling album, Once I Was An Eagle, is that it’s the fourth recording of her career, which is a remarkable achievement for a 23-year-old. The song Master Hunter has hints of It Ain’t Me Babe, a seminal Bob Dylan song that originally appeared on his fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan, which was released in 1964 by Columbia Records when he was, that’s right, 23. “You want a woman who will call your name? It ain’t me, babe,” sings Marling echoing Dylan’s:

“If you want a woman who will follow your name
It ain’t me babe.
No, no, no
It ain’t me babe.”
