Ray LaMontagne Covers Bob Dylan's Big Lebowski Song

Good idea: Pairing Ray LaMontagne's delightful scratch with a lesser-known Bob Dylan gem that gained a new life through its association with "The Dude," Donny Kerabatsos, and Walter Sobchak. "The Man in Me" is featured in the opening credits of The Big Lebowski, and it arguably is as essential to the film as any song on the soundtrack, aside from Kenny Rogers' "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)."

Judging by the way things have gone so far, attendees at LaMontagne's tour dates with Levon Helm have gotten to hear this treat of a song. Hopefully the same can be said for Thursday's show at the Pompano Amphitheatre.
