Dylan Cover #208 James Kole "Country Pie" 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 James Kole of "Country Pie"

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
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:
Have not heard of James Kole before, but he is a blues-man from St Paul, Minnesota, same state as the bard as well.       
Thoughts on Cover:
A really fun light run through with some cooking electric guitar a nice stand up bass and some funky drums. Nice quick way to kick off the Monday, in fact listen to it twice.
