Dylan Cover #420 Dylan On The Rocks "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Dylan On The Rocks performing a live cover of "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
The first song on the iconic Blonde on Blonde "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" is an anthem for a do what with, is up for debate. Stoned in the head or stoned by the masses up to you to decide. Whatever your thoughts on the lyrics and meaning it can't be argued that Bob is having fun which doesn't always come across on his studio releases. The "salvation Army" style horns and marching is a hoot...once in a long while but not made for everyday consumption. Truth be told, the song is normally skipped when I am listening to the album, I like opening Blonde on Blonde better with "Pledging My Time".


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have not heard of Dylan On The Rocks before, but they are a German Bob Dylan cover band and here is their Facebook page.

Thoughts on Cover:
What other song can we pick for #420?  Thanks to Dylan On The Rocks for doing a fun live version.
