Dylan Cover #157 Three Bob Night "Country Pie"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Three Bob Night  of "Country Pie"

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Recorded for Nashville Skyline "Country Pie" is a tasty little treat that doesn't leave you too fat after consuming it. The free-wheeling sense that accompanies it is simply charming, almost a kid song that I could see parents singing to children it has a whimsical air that elevates it up above simple throw away tune.  It was certainly a surprise to hear it live, the 2000 tour was the only time he broke it out in his career.  

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We are not familiar with Three Bob Night but they seem interesting. The bass player is all over the place, wish he was turned up a bit more.
Thoughts on Cover:
A quick upbeat jaunt. As mentioned the bass seems to be the stand out instrument but it is a bit low in this mix. A quick easy one to start the fall.
