Dylan Cover #236 Dylan on the Rocks "Hurricane"

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 Dylan on the Rocks of "Hurricane"

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
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.
Cover Tune:

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Dylan on the Rocks is a German cover band. You can find out more about them here. Since I don't have much to add on them, I wanted to share some pictures of Bob Dylan with Mohammed Ali., RIP. 

Thoughts on Cover:
Fine cover, but if you've read any of this series so far you know we aren't the biggest fans of Cover's that co-opt the affected Dylan voice. Otherwise, great cover.
