Dylan Cover #148 Torresi Maffei Liberti Rockestra "Maggie's Farm"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from the Torresi Maffei Liberti Rockestra and is a live cover of "Maggie's Farm"
Thought's on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
"Maggie's Farm" is classic Dylan, everyone thinks they know what it's about and they are sure they are right, but they all think different things.  I will confess I like the sped up Electric version from Newport Folk Festival that caused the end of popular folk music (in theory) and really solidified Dylan's pop music career.  It is a great tune and really flows in lots of forms... 

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Like a lot of artists in this series we are not familiar with Torresi Maffei Liberti Rockestra but they are cooking...
Thoughts on Cover:
We love covers like this when the band makes the original their own. Turning this into a grooving blues number is a great idea and it is excuted live winningly, cheers!!!
