Dylan Cover #258 Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard covering "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" 

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
Yet another one of the mega-Dylan tunes that we haven't covered someone else covering on this site (got that covered?). Hard to believe because this song is so iconic and flat out awesome. Biting and yet not bitter, a toss off of the grandest proportions, "Don' Think Twice" is epic and yet so straight forwardly simple. It easily ranks as one of the bard's best works, truly a classic.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Two American legends. Simply put, I am not sure what more needs to be said about these two.
Thoughts on Cover:
Pretty spot on perfect, simple, the fellas don't do much to this, there are nice brushes on snares a harmonica and some electric guitar but things are streamlined. A hell of a cover version.
