The Cover Version - The White Stripes do 'Isis'

I was thinking about Isis; how she thought I was so reckless ...

A cover of a track from Bob's great 'Desire' LP from 1976; the occult-laden hymn to Osiris aka 'Isis'.

Yap, Johnny Gillis - who's referred to himself in some interview I've seen as Dylan's son! - together with the chick who was allegedly his ex-wife (also claimed for years by Johnny to be his sister) apply the White Stripes 'formula' to the song here.

All of which turns out pretty good.

Johnny and the missus/sister performed this live on a number of occasions, but never released an official version.

This one's from a studio demo.
