Dylan Cover #143 Chris Martin "A Simple Twist Of Fate" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Chris Martin and is a live cover of "Simple Twist of Fate"
Thoughts on Dylan's Original:
From the first time we tackled 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: 
Well this review, not written by me, sums it up perfectly. If you never read that you really should, some of the best music writing in recent years. 
Thoughts on Cover:
While I could give two shits for his real band, this cover is fine, straight ahead with some delicate if a bit Dylan-nasal singing. As the song progresses he seems to be more comfortable with his own voice rather then mimicking the original. A fine straight take.
