Dylan Cover #219 Federico Borluzzi "Thunder On The Mountain"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Federico Borluzzi and is a live cover of "Thunder On The Mountain"  

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
The opening track on Dylan's 2006 album Modern Times, "Thunder On The Mountain" has all the ingredients of a classic; ingenious word play, a rhythmic backbone and some sweet fret work.  In my original review of Modern Times I quoted three sets of lyrics from this tune.  It is epic and fits in with the heavyweights of Dylan's past.  

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I have not hear of Federico Borluzzi before, but a quick search pulls up that: Federico Borluzzi is a singer-songwriter, cover artist and busker from Italy. Guitarist, singer and harmonica player
Thoughts on Cover:
This week and next we are showcasing two street performers in Italy doing covers of Dylan. Fun stuff all around even if this cover is a bit sped up. We would love to be strolling through the old world and come upon an artist playing Dylan, wouldn't get much better then that.
