Dylan Cover #427 Dr. Zwig "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 Dr. Zwig 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 Dr. Zwig and will have to check hum out more in depth in the near future. Seems like an interesting cat.

Thoughts on Cover:
A straight ahead rocking cover of the Dylan tune, that also puts a little head nod towards the Neil Young version from "Bob Fest" with it's guitar solos. A rocking way to start another quarantined week.
