Dylan Cover #275 Brittany Campbell "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live acoustic cover by Brittany Campbell of the Dylan tune "Rainy Day Women #12 & #35"
Thoughts On Original:
From the first time we highlighted someone covering this tune:
The first song on the iconic Blonde on Blonde "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" is an anthem for a do what with, is up for debate. Stoned in the head or stoned by the masses up to you to decide. Whatever your thoughts on the lyrics and meaning it can't be argued that Bob is having fun which doesn't always come across on his studio releases. The "Salvation Army" style horns and marching is a hoot but not made for everyday consumption. Truth be told, the song is normally skipped when I am listening to the album, I like opening Blonde on Blonde better with "Pledging My Time" and rarely listen to this track.

Thoughts on Cover Artist
I have never heard of Ms. Campbell before but a quick search brings back that she is an incredibly talented Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Artist. She has a bandcamp page, and maybe most impressive is her animations for her own songs on her youtube page.

Thoughts on Cover:Wow, it is finds like this that make us continue this Monday series. What seems like a quirky off the cuff cover is fantastic. Acoustic, Rhythmic, Amazing. We spent some time checking out all of Brittany's music on her various sites and you should as well. This cover was just the beginning of this talented artist. We mentioned we don't like this song, but we sure as hell dig this version.
