This Wheel's On Fire (3:30)

Cover of Season of the Witch

From Season of the Witch and 60 other releases

“This Wheel’s on Fire” is a song written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko. It was originally recorded by Dylan and The Band during their legendary 1967 sessions and later released on the 1975 album, The Basement Tapes. It was also released on The Band’s first album Music From Big Pink.

In 1968, this version by Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity became a hit in the UK, peaking at #5 on the UK Singles Chart. With its use of distortion, phasing, the evocative imagery of the song’s title and the group’s flamboyant dress, this version is closely associated with the psychedelic era in British music. Driscoll recorded the song again in the early 1990s with Adrian Edmondson as the theme to the BBC comedy series Absolutely Fabulous, whose main characters are throwbacks to that era.
