Dylan Cover #244 The Rhipeters "Maggie's Farm"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes is a live cover of "Maggie's Farm" from The Rhipeters
Thoughts on Dylan's Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
"Maggie's Farm" is classic Dylan, everyone thinks they know what it's about and they are sure they are right, but they all think different things. I will confess I like the sped up Electric version from Newport Folk Festival that caused the end of popular folk music (in theory) and really solidified Dylan's pop music career. It is a great tune and really flows in lots of forms making it perfect to cover.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
 Not much out there on them,  but they seem to be a cover band doing tracks for youtube videos. More can be found here.
Thoughts on Cover:
A good basic acoustic cover that moves at a bright tempo. THe best part may be the added harmonies to this offering. Happy Monday.
