Dylan Cover #152 The Five Believers "From A Buick 6"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live  performance by The Five Believers doing a cover of "From A Buick 6" 
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
The electric Dylan and one of the few songs where the Band Bob played with overshadows his early talents. Namely Al Kooper on organ and the great Mike Bloomfield on guitar as the two rip it open.  Bob is in a lighter mood and recalling old blues tunes like "Milk Cow Blues" but he also has a stream of consciousness appeal to the lyrics. Nowhere near one of his best, but one that lots of musicians like to cover because of it's kick ass blues rock feel.   

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have not heard of The Five Believers before but I am going to go out on a limb and and guess they are a Dylan Cover band. You can see more of their performances here
Thoughts on Cover:
A pretty straight ahead working of the song with a good beat and better guitar solo to break things up. One thing we can not get into in this series is when people put on a Bob Dylan voice and the lead singer does that here. Sorry not our cup of meat as some singer sings...
