Dylan Cover #117 David Calder "Simple Twist Of Fate"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from David Calder and is a live cover of "Simple Twist of Fate

Thoughts On Original:
From the first time we talked about a cover version of this song:
Well the classics just keep coming in this series, with "Simple Twist of Fate" what a gem of a song.  Impeccable lyrics gorgeous phrasing, just a great great song that is hard not to enjoy.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have not heard of David Calder before, this is my first exposure to his singing and playing. There are a lot of David Calder's online so I don't know much about him other then his take on this all-time Dylan classic...
Thoughts on Cover:
Another really good gem from an artist we haven't heard of. Also when doing a simple acoustic rendition it is hard to make the version your own, David does that, drawing things out in very pretty fashion. The song takes its time as he sings and plays for a receptive audience. Good stuff. 
Grade: B+
