Dylan Cover #432 Michael Dallas and Friends "Romance In Durango"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Michael Dallas and Friends 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 Michael Dallas and Friends listening to this cover.

Thoughts On Cover:
A fun jaunt through a great Dylan tune. Lots of instrumentation and strong singing on this interpretation.
