Dylan Cover #434 Molly Jeanne "When The Ship Comes In" 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 Molly Jeanne playing "When The Ship Comes In"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
One of our favorite songs from the early days of Dylan. The purest Irish Folk we felt he ever got, Joan Baez was a fan of this one and told a cool story during No Direction Home, about him being pissed at a hotel attendant and then having this song just spiral out of him. Images of the sea, the salt, the song, raiding/pillaging; a pirate song at heart. When we are looking for pure folk Dylan this one usually finds it's way to our ears.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Have not heard of Molly Jeanne before today's cover. She has a debut album, original songs and more at her site.

Thoughts on Cover:
An excellent live ukulele cover with some really gorgeous floating vocals from the young singer. This was posted in 2014 and Molly Jeanne has grown up, but this video shows she had lots of talent even back then.
