Dylan Cover #86 Danny Fox "It You Gotta Go, Go Now" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. This week we have Danny Fox, doing a live cover of "If You Gotta Go, Go Now".

Thoughts on Original:
A very cool tune that was unearthed on the fantastic Bootleg Series Vol 1-3.  This track is fun, playful, devious, winking, perfect Dylan.  It has the feeling of a tossed off song, but even Dylan's b-cut's are still gems and this is no exception. I also love how Bob laughs and fumbles through a few words about a dark door, very endearing...even when Bob is being creepy.  

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have never heard of Danny Fox before. There are a few Danny Fox's online, but I can't seem to find this other then a few youtube clips. As mentioned often (but not lately) part of the reason for this series is just finding random artists covering the Bard, and Mr. Fox seems like a fun one.  
Thoughts On Cover:
Really Cool cover, straight ahead in Dylan's hometown.  Very little deviation, but not much really needed on this underplayed song. Not much more to say, enjoy this one on a recovery Monday. 
Grade: B-
