Dylan Cover #405 Crowes Pasture "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" 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 Crowes Pasture playing "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
An energetic romp that has been covered by everyone, this tune is a great swirl through Dylan's freaky mind. It was a punch and a whirlwind journey through Juarez, Mexico around Easter time...Maybe. There are lots of literary hints dropped, as well as a mischievous smile throughout. One of the first Dylan tunes we gravitated towards and with good reason, it is still one of our favorites.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE are new to Crowes Pasture who are the guitar/banjo duo of Monique Byrne and Andy Rogovin. The New England based bluegrass romance group have a few albums and EP's out there for those who want more.

Thoughts on Cover:
A really nice light live acoustic cover of the tune with delicate phrasing and banjo break in the middle. A pleasant version for this winter Monday.
