Dylan Cover #285 Warren Haynes "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 live cover from Warren Haynes 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 tune:
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 than 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. A damn good song.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We love Warren Haynes. Since The Godfather of Soul passed away Haynes could be the hardest working man in show business, and his solo tour for Ashes & Dust was a joy as was the full album which we rated high on RtBE's 2015 year end list.
Thoughts on Cover:]
We have heard Haynes cover a ton of songs live over the years, however we have never heard him cover this song. We can't believe it has slipped by until now, this is a FANTASTIC cover. Warren voice, his guitar lines, the added, maybe one of the best in the whole series considering it's live one take nature.
