Dylan Cover #142 Connor Zwetsch "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"

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 Connor Zwetsch playing "Knockin' On Heavens Door"
Thoughts on Original:
The song that seems to have been covered by anyone, but when originally recorded it it was on one of Dylan's oddest releases yet. A straight ahead mournful number that just seems to work, it has invaded culture (possibly because of all the covers) and I would wager is one of Dylan's most widely known tunes... 

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have never heard of Connor Zwetsch before but a quick search reveals that she is a singer Songwriter from Tampa, FL.
Thoughts on Cover:
A pretty straight ahead take on the song in acoustic solo fashion. Zwetsch has a powerful voice and my favorite part of the cover is the hard strumming during the musical break around the 2:20 mark. Fine stuff.
