Dylan Cover #295 Tiffany Anne "My Back Pages" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Tiffany Anne of "My Back Pages"

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
The original has taken upon itself a cultural importance, and the chorus has simply become iconic. I doubt Dylan intended such, but it toes the line of out and out protest and illustrative questions. He puts down everyone from evangelists to girls, but the language snakes and flows so magically that it doesn't seem as harsh as "Positively 4th St" or "Ballad in Plain D". The sense of exhaling desperation or at least the realization that age confuses things even more seems to be what I take from this tune after each listen, but things can change...or can they?


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have not heard of Tiffany Anne before, but you can check out her music on itunes.

Thoughts on Cover:
This is an interesting one for us this Monday. There is no doubt Miss Anne has a massive voice and she powerfully delivers the song. The thing is RtBE kinda like's this tune better when it is less dramatic and serious. The beautiful thing about Bob songs is that everyone takes their own vision of the tune and we like this one with more of a smirk as opposed to huge swells. To each their own though.
