The Black Sorrows Cover Bob Dylan Ahead Of 19th album ‘Citizen John’

The Black Sorrows have covered Bob Dylan’s ‘Silvio’ ahead of the 2019 release of their 19th album ‘Citizen John’. (It is also Joe Camilleri’s 49th album).

While the album is still a work in progress, the song ‘Silvio’ was an early finish and Joe Camilleri wanted to get it out for the Black Sorrows fans.

Joe refers to ‘Silvio’ as “an underrated Bob Dylan penned pop gem”. Dylan released the song in 1988 on his ‘Down in the Groove’ album.

Dylan wrote ‘Silvio’ with American poet Robert Hunter. Hunter also collaborated with Dylan on ‘Duquesne Whistle’ from Bob’s more recent ‘Tempest’.

The ‘Citizen John’ album brings Camilleri back to Mushroom under the Bloodlines banner. “I’m not a perfect fit with the music industry. I call it art, they call it product. I just like making music. But Bloodlines is a great home for my music. It’s nice to be back working with Michael (Gudinski) & Warren (Costello) as they are genuine music fans.”

Joe released The Black Sorrows albums ‘Beat Club’ (1998) and ‘One Mo’ Time’ (2004) through the Mushroom Group. His Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons releases ‘Screaming Targets’ (1979), ‘Hats Off Step Lively’ (1980) and ‘Cha’ (1982) were also on Mushroom.
