Wow! I'd never seen that before. Julie Driscoll makes me think of David Carradine in "Kung Fu." It led me to this:

I just remembered that Rich Danko (This Wheel's On Fire) and Richard Manuel (Tears of Rage) co-wrote those two Bob Dylan songs that are among the most memorable for me.

It was on "Music From Big Pink" that I first heard "This Wheel's On Fire" in 1968. That would have been not long after Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated.

No wonder that song resonated so well in 1968:

Still does.
