Bob Dylan Cover #158 Julia Roempke "If You See Her, Say Hello"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Julia Roempke playing "If You See Her, Say Hello"
Thoughts on Original:
A really heart wrenching tune from Blood On The Tracks because of both the amazing lyrics and the vulnerability with which Dylan sings the words. The phrasing is excellent as well, with the song coming alive when sung with a sense of resignation and a touch of despair. A linchpin and sometimes over looked piece to perhaps Dylan's best album.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Like many artists in this ongoing series I have not heard of Julia Roempke until listening to her here for the first time. She is a Scandinavian Singer/Songwriter who you can see more of on her youtube channel
Thoughts on Cover:
Gorgeously sung and expertly delivered in a live acoustic (personal) setting. Can tell this tune means a lot to Julia just from hearing her sing it. Makes me want to check out her originals.
