Dylan Cover #214 J.M. Baule "Series of Dreams"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by JM Baule playing "Series Of Dreams" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
An ambitious track that really should have kicked off Oh Mercy. In fact reading the Wikipedia entry on this song gives you a bit of insight into Dylan's notoriously flippant studio style; had this started Oh Mercy it would have been kept in even higher regard then it already is. The first time we came across it was on The Bootleg Series 1-3, along with "Blind Willie McTell" and "She's Your Lover Now" we were simply stunned such amazing songs were just left in the outtake pile. "Series of Dreams" closes that amazing collection and makes you want to re-listen to the whole damn thing.      

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have never heard of JM Baule, but his bandcamp is right'chere
Thoughts on Cover:
Fantastic, we end our Dylan series in 2015 on a perfectly stated "Series of Dreams". Enjoy.
