Dylan Cover #247 Dawes "Lay Lady Lay" Live Acoustic

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Dawes and Paloma playing "Lay Lady Lay"
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we addressed a cover of this tune:
Excellent track and the first time the world heard Dylan's new singing style, which would only last for Nashville Skyline. This song is the standout track from this album, it is a classic and so simple, yet sweet and timeless. One of Dylan's best tracks, this phase was the the closest to "country" he ever got and "Lay Lady Lay" is an overall fantastic piece of music.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Dawes is one of those bands that we have always heard great things about but have yet to give them a proper going over. This was a really cool deal though, to run a contest and sing with one of their fans for this cover, that already moves them up the cool level in the RtBE book.
Thoughts on Cover:
This may be one of our favorites in this whole series. The band Dawes ran a contest with the prize being be able to cover a song with them and this is the result. The lovely and talented Paloma fits the feels like a glove, making this a unique and excellent cover of "Lay Lady Lay".
