Dylan Cover #176 Marc Dobson: "Knockin' On Heavens Door"

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 Marc Dobson playing "Knockin' On Heavens Door"

Thoughts on Original:
The song that seems to have been covered by anyone, but when originally recorded it it was on one of Dylan's oddest releases yet. A straight ahead mournful number that just seems to work, it has invaded culture (possibly because of all the covers) and I would wager is one of Dylan's most widely known tunes...

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have never heard of Marc Dobson before but a quick search reveals that he is a performer from Florida.
Thoughts on Cover:
This looks like it is going to be whacky cover due to "The One Man Bands" setup but Dobson plays it fairly straight ahead. A fine cover from an innovative performer.
