Dylan Cover #186 New Rising Sun "Hurricane" Live

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 New Rising Sun playing "Hurricane"
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover version of this tune:
One of the most iconic songs in Bob Dylan's repertoire and famously returned him to "topical" song writing that many of his fans clamored for. Coming on the story-song-centric album Desire, the song and attached cause obviously invigorated Dylan at a crucial point in his life, and gave us the cool term "pig circus" to boot. You can argue the facts and the case if you want to but simply as a work of art "Hurricane" holds a title belt.  

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I am not aware of New Rising Sun and a simple Google search uncovers that they are Belgium based folk/rock band. You can find more about them here on Facebook.
