Dylan Cover #127 The Whateverly's "Country Pie" Live

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by The Whateverly's  of "Country Pie"
Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Recorded for Nashville Skyline "Country Pie" is a tasty little treat that doesn't leave you too fat after consuming it. The free-wheeling sense that accompanies it is simply charming, almost a kid song that I could see parents singing to children it has a whimsical air that elevates it up above simple throw away tune.  It was certainly a surprise to hear it live, the 2000 tour was the only time he broke it out in his career.  

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We are not familiar with The Whateverly's but here is their website. It states they are a folk group from the pacific Northwest. Def down to listen to them play some more tunes.
Thoughts on Cover:
A really fun upbeat run through with lots of instrumentation. The recording is obviously from a fan in attendance, and the cymbals dominate the beginning of the video, but as the song progress's levels even out and things sound fine and confident.
