I have recently been involved in a lengthy email exchange with the promoter of this small venue tour re whether the right locations have been chosen.

The songwriter of this song has appeared at Bluesfest.
When it was originally written it was offered to some other musicans who have also appeared at Bluesfest,but they turned it down.
It was subsequently recorded by different musicans and became their most well known song.
What is the name of the album it appears on when recorded by those different musicans.

Suspect there could be dozens of answers
It is not unusual for a song or anything else to be offered to one or more artist
before landing with a perhaps less known who has success with it
One case in point ITS NOT UNUSUAL was recorded by unknown Tom Jones to pass around
as a demo The song was offered to Sandie Shaw, then a hot artist, she refused, so impressed by Jones
rendition she recommended his version be released The rest as they say is history
It is rather common
Bluesfest has a huge artist history,
I'd guess the songwriter is Dylan the recording musicians were The Byrds ( it was not stated that the recording artists were at Bluesfest)

The songwriter is English.
Its not unusual was not written by Tom Jones so does not fit the criteria.
The musicans who later recorded it are US,and have not appeared at Bluesfest.

This could be a long exercise
Elvis has written dozens of songs for other people/groups
I'll pick Girl Talk ?

Elvis Costello is not the songwriter.

A clue.The musicans who turned it down were also English.
And when they performed at Bluesfest they were light on original members.

The Americans who later recorded it formed their band in 1965.

Could this song be Black Magic Woman by Peter Green?

If so, I think it was on Santana's Abraxas album.

No idea who may have turned it down, however.
