Dylan Cover #254 Echo & The Bunnymen "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by the Echo & The Bunnymen of the Dylan tune "It's All Over, Now Baby Blue"
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
Baby Blue is magical all around, from the pure asshole way he sung it to Donovan to put him in his place in Don't Look Back, to the heart breaking recent live versions on the never ending tour. The song has a lot of what makes Dylan who he is; mystery but a sense of understanding somehow. Dominated by the amazing lyrics the song is a hard one not to like.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Never been a huge Echo & The Bunnymen fan, they kind of fell into that nebulous post punk/new wave era that we never dug deep into. From what we heard they are fine, just never were RtBE's cup of tea.
Thoughts on Cover:
Love the organ intro, and the spacey guitar work. The group nails the mysterious elements of this track perfectly. Nice way to kick off the week.
