Sherwin Linton is a still active rockabilly & country singer from Bob's home state of Minnesota. His music career dates back to 1956, and he was among the first Midwest artists to cover Dylan, with mid-60s recordings of Girl From The North Country (release info unknown.) This 1968 duet of Boots with Cleo Bee and Sherwin's band The Cotton Kings was recorded in Chicago.
For more Linton-Dylan connections, read the March 2004 entry on his website's "Current News" page.
