Dylan Cover #416 Wes Dance "Romance In Durango" 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 Wes Dance playing "Romance In Durango"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover version of this song:
Containing the best opening line of any Dylan song (which places it high on the best opening line of any song ever) "Romance In Durango" is a movie played out over violins, words, dead bodies, love, adventure and life. A western tinged Dylan tune that talks about a horse taking him to Durango. A fantastic burst of creative songwriting and exhilarating playing it is a timelessly fantastic tune.

Thoughts On Cover Artist:
RtBE is first finding out about Wes Dance with this posting. He released an album in 2009 on Bandcamp.
Thoughts On Cover:
A little bit of a rough cover with parts and lyrics mixed up, but a valiant effort and that is all anyone can ever give on a Monday.
