Another great soul voice gone. She was also a backup singer on the L-A recording scene. I wonder if she ever did backup on any Stones songs.

If you listen to some of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series Vol 13, Trouble No More, Clydie is amazing on it. There's a 1981 Gotta Serve Somebody from Germany that is fantastic, and hearing Clydie growl at the end "You gotta serve somebody" is spine-tingling. It's one of my favourite Dylan performances ever, and all the more improved by Clydie.

RIP Clydie !

Weren't the rumored to be married at one time? And she was the one that led to his interest in Christianity and therefore the inspiration behind his 3 'gospel' albums?

Ah, right. I read the Trouble No More companion book, should've realized that!

Clydie and Bob were in a relationship for a bit; she also sang on Union Sundown from Infidels, and an unreleased 1982 album.

Bob's embrace of Christianity is a matter of conjecture though, e.g. he had taken up with Helena Springs, one of his 1978 backing vocalists, who was a Christian. He also was in a relationship with Mary Artes, an actress, who was also Christian, and his former guitarist, T-Bone Burnett was a Christian too.

In a nutshell, Christianity was something inescapable around Bob's orbit a the time (1978-1979).

Plus, I think, from the 1978 Street Legal / World Tour era, Bob had to pull back a bit from the self-medicating.
