Dylan Cover #400 Elvis Presley "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Elvis Presley covering "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
This song is so iconic and flat out awesome, even people who dislike Dylan have to enjoy this tune right? Biting and yet not bitter, a toss off of the grandest proportions, "Don' Think Twice, It's All Right" is epic and yet so straight forwardly simple. It easily ranks as one of the bard's best works, truly a classic and has been covered by so many people in so many ways.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE will get to Elvis later this week, but what did Bob Dylan think of him? "The highlight of my career? That's easy, Elvis recording one of my songs."
Thoughts on Cover:
This is a fun studio jam as the band feels out the track and gets loose.  Elvis voice gets loose as well especially in the beginning as he rumbles gets low and sings with gusto. A very cool take, which wasn't meant for critical ears, just fun run through.

With 100 in this series RtBE focused on an all time legend, same for 200, 300 was Emmylou Harris and now back to Elvis for 400. Just wanted to take a minute here to send out a hearty thanks for reading this Monday series and the site in general.
