Dylan Cover #175 Paul Sonnenberg "Isis"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Paul Sonnenberg and is a live cover of "Isis" 
Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune in the series:
Desire is such a thick album, Dylan's most complex story songs seem to hover in and around it, and not all are winners...."Isis" is though.  A great song that manages to engage even without a chorus, it is one of Bob's more "mystical" tunes and lures most people in the first time they hear it...before the mp3 age it came right after the powerful "Hurricane" and transforms the album from timely to timeless. 

Thoughts on Cover Artist:

I have never heard of Paul Sonnenberg before but he has two youtube channels of music, his cover channel and his other channel.  

Thoughts on Cover:
AN excellently sung run through the tune with an airy acoustic breeze, after last months jazz inclinations a straight ahead crisp live cover does this song justice on this Monday morning.
