Bob Dylan’s Dream – Peter Paul and Mary (1967) FLAC Remaster HD Video

Bob Dylan’s Dream” was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary for their seventh studio release, Album 1700, which was released in March of 1967.

This record was one of the first albums I remember listening to at a very young age. It’s another of the records I came to through the album collection of my older cousins….and it is absolutely included in the first few albums which started me down the path to a lifelong love of rock and roll music. Happy to do something for this tune, probably my very favorite from the album…might work up something for a couple of other favorite tracks eventually….lots of great work by Peter, Paul and Mary!

Album 1700 produced the band’s most successful and final hit — “Leaving on a Jet Plane” (a John Denver composition). The album peaked at #15 on Billboard Magazine’s Top LP chart and was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Folk Performance category. Album 1700 was so named because its original LP issue was Warner Bros. Records catalog# W-1700 for the mono version and WS-1700 for the stereo version. The album stayed on the charts and rose again in 1969, thanks to the single release of “Leaving on a Jet Plane”

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art contributed to this new art…..THANK YOU!!! and also of course THANK YOU for watching…hope you enjoy the vid!

[Lyrics]
While riding on a train goin’ west
I fell asleep for to take my rest
I dreamed a dream that made me sad
Concerning myself and the first few friends I had

With half-damp eyes I stared to the room
Where my friends and I spent many an afternoon
Where we together weathered many a storm
Laughin’ and singin’ till the early hours of the morn

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung
Our words were told, our songs were sung
Where we longed for nothin’ and were quite satisfied
Talkin’ and a-jokin’ about the world outside

With haunted hearts through the heat and cold
We never thought we could ever get old
We thought we could sit forever in fun
But our chances really was a million to one

As easy it was to tell black from white
It was all that easy to tell wrong from right
And our choices were few and the thought never hit
That the one road we traveled would ever shatter and split

How many a year has passed and gone
And many a gamble has been lost and won
And many a road taken by many a friend
And each one I’ve never seen again

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
That we could sit simply in that room again
Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat
I’d give it all gladly if our lives could be like that
