Dylan Cover #324 Danny McEvoy "I Want You" 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 Danny McEvoy singing "I Want You" 

Thoughts on Original:
(From the first time we tackled a cover of this song)
A song that fits the Gemini Dylan like a glove; direct lyrical yearning chorus with verses that meander about introducing characters like roadblocks in the way of true love. It was the last tune written for the mega Blonde on Blonde and a song he and others (it was Al Kooper's favorite) admired so much he almost titled the album after it. Never a track that jumps to the top of peoples "favorites" or "best of" Dylan lists but one that really nails what the artist is all about in some of the simplest terms.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
From the first time we covered a cover of the cover artist (this is getting confusing!) Danny McEvoy is a singer songwriter from Liverpool England. Check out his youtube and Facebook pages.

Thoughts on Cover:
A really shiny upbeat cover of a gorgeous song. Danny even gives a little class at the end for inspiring guitar players to play this jam. A great easy way to get the brain working this Monday as we recover from NOLA Jazzfest.
