Dylan Cover #220 Unknown "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 an Unknown Performer 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:
We got no idea who this performer is...

Thoughts on Cover:
...and we feel that makes this even cooler and a vital part of this series, everyone rich poor, beginner expert, old young, loves Dylan and is moved to cover him. If anyone knows who it is, let RtBE know and we will update this post.
