Dylan Cover #139 Royston & Co. "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 Royston & Co.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:
All I got to go on is the info in the about section on youtube: Royston (Vocals), Allan Faull (Guitar/Vocals), Mike McCullagh (Drums), Vivienne McCullagh (Keys). Google searches don't bring up much else except for other Dylan Covers but this group seems confident (to say the least) about this song especially Royston on vocals who gets the headline here.
Thoughts on Cover:
A powerfully delivered live rendition of the classic Dylan tune. Normally people go light and easy, with a devil may care attitude when they tackle this jam but not Royston and company. The vocals are delivered with venom and the playing is electric and sturdy a good add to our series as we approach 150 covers.
