Dylan Cover #135 Anders Osborne "When I Paint My Masterpiece" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Anders Osborne playing "When I Paint My Masterpiece"

This month our Dylan Cover Series will focus on artists playing The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Anders Osborne will be playing the Acura Stage on Saturday April 26th at 2pm.
Thoughts on Original:
Emerging from the writing/recording demo sessions at Big Pink and credited to Dylan "When I Paint My Masterpiece" was first was recorded and released by The Band and associated with them as much (or more so) then with Dylan himself. A fantastic rollicking tune that trapezes through history, in a fun bouncy manor. Engaging, fun, lyrical and musical, an upbeat gem of a Dylan tune that I am sure the boys in The Band had a hand in. 

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Well we just posted a review on Anders last album and while we are not too keen on it we have always dug his style and his live show is worth catching whenever you can as he is a joy when performing. He has worked and will be working more with Phil Lesh and Friends a bit so that adds some excitement to his style.    
Thoughts on Cover:
Jammed out and flowing which fits for this track. An easy stroll but with the bite of Osborne's (and guests) guitar backed by his solid rhythm section. A really nice way to kick off this week, so close to the start of the fest. God I wish I was packing up and heading south tonight.
