Wallflower (Bob Dylan song)
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (February 2010)|
"Wallflower" is a song written and recorded in November 1971 by Bob Dylan. Dylan's own recording, however, was not released until twenty years later as part of The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991. An alternate version from the same 1971 session was released in 2013 on The Bootleg Series Vol. 10: Another Self Portrait (1969–1971).
In October 1972, the song was recorded by Doug Sahm, with Dylan singing backing vocal, for Sahm's album Doug Sahm and Band, released in 1973. The song has since been covered by many artists.
A number of artists have recorded a cover of what once was an obscure Dylan song (incomplete list):
- David Bromberg, 1974, for Wanted Dead or Alive (Columbia Records)
- Buddy and Julie Miller, 2001 for Buddy & Julie Miller (Hightone)
- Uncle Earl, 2007, for Waterloo, Tennessee (Rounder)
