Dylan Cover #307 Miss Caroline "Blowin' In The Wind" 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 by Miss Caroline playing "Blowin' In The Wind"
Jazzy January has invade Mondays! All this month we will check out various artists covering Dylan in a Jazz vibe, can you dig it daddy-o? 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
The classic Dylan song, if you asked 100 people to name you the first Bob Dylan song they thought of, or his best known song, I am guessing 95-99 of them would answer "Blowin' In The Wind".  It is an epic, vital song in the history of recorded music. The lyrics tell a stirring tale, the melody is enchanting, it is pretty spot on perfect, and when it originally came out if announced to the world the greatness that was/is/always will be Bob Dylan.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Miss Caroline is a Swedish pop/folk artist. Original songs are posted on her youtube channel. For this song she had some help. Electric guitar: Elliot Elliot, Acoustic guitar: Pontus Wittenmark, Pocket trumpet: David Nilsson

Thoughts on Cover:
It is unique. Not one of our favorite versions, but we do love it when artists go out on a limb and try something different, they just don't always nail it.

On a side-note, Happy New Year!
