Dylan Cover #290 Michael J Fillmore "Romance In Durango"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Michael J Fillmore playing "Romance In Durango"
Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover version of this song:
Containing the best opening line of any Dylan song (which places it high on the best opening line of any song ever) "Romance In Durango" is a movie played out over violins, words, dead bodies, love, adventure and life. A western tinged Dylan tune that talks about a horse taking him to Durango. A fantastic burst of creative songwriting and exhilarating playing it is a timelessly fantastic tune.

Thoughts On Cover Artist:
Michael J Fillmore posts a few different songs to youtube. We have not heard of him before.
Thoughts On Cover:
This one really surprised us as the playing is truly topnotch and the singing is grand as well. We will be checking out Mr. Fillmore's other uploads.
