I am stuck. On Bob Dylan's "Good As I Been To You" album, he sings a standard "Tomorrow Night", but for the life of me I can't remember who made it famous. Anyone help?

yours,

Peter T.

Atomic Rooster's biggest hit was Tomorrow Night, by Vince Crane. What's the writer's credit (small print in brackets after the title on the label)?

Was it
Patty Griffin?
or try looking up an online CD store and typing in the name of the song, click "song title" and see what comes up.

When I wake up in your bed
I can still hear what you said
Like a bad dream you'll be back
Tomorrow night

ATOMIC ROOSTER

No, it's not the Atomic Rooster song. Peter, you might try www.allmusic.com. Select the "song" option and search for "Tomorrow Night" and it pulls up a list of recordings of the song. Perhaps this will jog your memory. Margaret

Lonnie Johnson & Elvis Presley had memorable versions.

Margaret V's resource reveals the earliest recordings of "Tomorrow Night" to have been done by Louis Armstrong. It's a good bet Bobby got it from there.

The Dylan album gives no composer credit: so is it "traditional"?
Surely Dylan wouldn't knowingly steal a song: we've been through this movie before.

Hmm. Louis Armstrong. No, the voice I recall was somewhat velvety. But must be someone jazz oriented. According to my search Carl Smith and Elvis seem to have done a "Tomorrow Night" song. Wonder if it is Carl Smith? Anyone know that version?

Oldest version I have of this ballad is by Lonnie Johnson, recorded in Cincinnati in 1947. Would love to hear Louis' version.

Peter,

If you go to an online CD store like CD Universe, many of the albums have sound files so that you could hear the tracks by the different artists and see which one is the version you are looking for.

I totally endorse Margaret's recommendation on the AllMusic site, and also its counterpart, the AllMovies site. Remarkable sources of info. I've been using these two sites since I first stumbled into the Internet about 7 years ago.   

Helen

Lonnie Johnson's version was a revival--the original hit was by Horace Heidt and his Orchestra December of 1939. Johnson's version seems to have been a bigger hit than the original, he made it to Number One on the R&B charts, and made the Top 2O on the Pop Charts in June of 1948. Heidt was the singer.Music by Sam Coslow(My Old Flame, Song of the South, Cocktails for Two) and Lyrics by Will Grosz(Harbor Lights, Isle of Capri, Along the Sante Fe Trail).

Heidt's popular "sweet bands" featured Alvino Rey, who designed the first steel console guitar and played it on many of their hits.
