Dylan Cover #277 Banjo Nick "One More Cup Of Coffee" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover from Banjo Nick and it is a version of "One More Cup Of Coffee" 

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
Bob's story tunes seemed to crest on Desire and "One More Cup Of Coffee" fits in the Western/Biblical/Mystical motif of both "Isis" and "Romance In Durango" but puts fourth a more ominous feel then either. Singing with Emmylou Harris on the original recording a haunting combo of voices which gets along perfectly with violins and other rag tag players from the sessions.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Not much info on Banjo Nick, here is his facebook page and there is an interview with him on Youtube as well.
Thoughts on Cover:
This one isn't perfect but we like the live and freewheeling nature of it. The banjo is a nice touch for this track and works excellently here.
