The video was filmed at ‘The Church’ of Tuli & Tommy Granger. It was directed by George McMorrow with assistance by Gregg Johnson and Mason Stelfox. This version of the song is presented in a flowing, emotionally resonant manner, which results in an excellent interpretation of a classic song. Any person taking on the task of covering a Dylan song can’t imitate it too closely for fear of sounding pale, and Pat Guadagno has successfully placed a warm spin on the song, bringing it a lovely and poignant freshness.
Every verse of this song speaks to someone. From the “Warrior whose Strength is not to Fight,” to the “Lonesome Hearted Lover with too Personal a Tale,” to “Each Unharmful Gentle Soul misplaced inside a Jail.”
We chose ‘The Church’ to film this video because it’s where Tommy G takes old cars and motorcycles to make them whole again. It works on old Folksingers too. — Pat Guadagno
