I am reading a book called "Route 19 Revisited: The Clash and London Calling" about the making of the album and its legacy. Towards the end of the book it's talking about the influence "London Calling" had on other contemporary artists, like Springsteen, who said "The River" was influenced as a 20 song, back-to-rock album, etc. Dylan asked Paul Simonon to play on "Down In The Groove" (on "Sally Sue Brown" and others not included from a March 27, 1987 session at Sunset Sound, Hollywood: (from bjorner) Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar), Steve Jones(guitar), Kevin Savigar(keyboards), Paul Simonon(bass), Myron Grombacher(drums). 1. Sally Sue Brown (Arthur Alexander/Earl Montgomery/Tom Stafford) 2. Wood In Steel (?) 3. Heaven (?) 4. Shake Your Money (?) 5. Chain Gang (Sam Cooke) 6. If You Need Me (Robert Bateman/Wilson Pickett/Sonny Sanders) It also says that Dylan gave Joe Strummer a song for "Earthquake Weather," an album that was recorded between November 1988-February 1989, but he ended up not using it. I had not heard anything about this before. Does anyone know which song Dylan gave Strummer or why he didn't use it? Dylan was starting to get back into some good writing by then (1988), around the "Oh Mercy" time, so it's strange that Joe Strummer would reject a Dylan song out of hand when he still was covering the likes of "Ride Your Donkey" for "Earthquake." Curious.
