Dylan Cover #375 Joe Paulik "Not Dark Yet" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. This week we have Joe Paulik, doing a live cover of "Not Dark Yet".

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
A excellent Dylan tune from any era but one that in particular screamed "I'm Still Alive And Kickin'!" on Time Out Of Mind at a time when Dylan was simply an after thought in current popular music scene. One of Dylan's most haunting tracks; it is hard not to feel his emotions and finality of the coming darkness as Dylan sings this lyric set.  An all-time great that is mysterious, foreboding, honest and powerful. 1st class Bob.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
First time coming across Joe Paulik. Good stuff.

Thoughts on Cover:
Really cool concept to recorded with Lake Superior providing texture and sound. Great singing and strumming as well. Hell of a cover.
