Dylan Cover #406 Andy & Renee & Hard Rain "Sweetheart Like You" Live 2015

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Andy & Renee & Hard Rain playing "Sweetheart Like You" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
All of the songs on Infidels  stuck around to long in the Bards brain (which we talked about before). While "Jokerman" overwhelms as a rambling waterfall of a song the first time you hear it, "Sweetheart Like You" is clear evidence of that fact that things were left to simmer on the stove longer then needed. It is a mix of condescension, sexy, sexist, insecure and scattered. In fact those things make for an amazing Dylan tune, but in this case I don't feel it really adds up to a classic or much of a very good song at all.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is our first time coming across Andy & Renee & Hard Rain. Turns out they have a podcast on Dylan though so we may have to dig into them more.

Thoughts on Cover:
A damn fine cover of this lesser played Dylan tune. Tight, well played and sung with gusto. Excellent all around.

Also it needs to be mentioned that with the USA's current political climate more than ever this couplet from the song hits home:

  1. These solutions are usually only used in worst case scenario situations but I wanted you to know the true options that are available that work. In most cases where there is a landscape drainage problem and let's say there is only five inches of slope when you need ten inches a good drain expert can install a drain that will work by creating slope from the back yard to the front then leveling out to the street because water that is level still flows but not as fast.
