Dylan Cover #149 Eric Howl "All I Really Want To Do"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Eric Howl playing "All I Really Want To Do"
 Thoughts on Original:
(From the first time we talked about a cover version of this song)
This song made Dylan leaving the "cause" and "topical songs" behind easier for his hardcore fans to swallow, because really, how can anyone dislike this song?  Simple, playful, loving, sly..."All I Really Want To Do Has it All". Oh and he left nothing behind, in fact he opened up a world of music for the world to experience, be inspired from, and enjoy, long after he is gone.

Thoughts On Cover Artist:
I have not heard of Eric Howl before. He is a Folk Singer from Bucks County PA
Thoughts On Cover:
Very straight ahead version of a folk singer doing a Bob Dylan impression. Nothing out of the usual for the cover...until the 1:38 mark where Eric breaks down completely and just whistles the melody a bit. A very nice touch.
