Dylan Cover #435 Stan Smith "Wallflower" Live Acoustic

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 Stan Smith playing "Wallflower"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Written in 1971 but not available to the ears until twenty years after the fact on the amazing Bootleg Vol 1-3, "Wallflower" is a sweet simple ditty that captures Bob in his folk/country phase of Self Portrait and New Morning. While not his deepest or most intense song it is a fine relaxed number that waltzes wonderfully light and free...getting naughty at the finish as well.     


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time RtBE is hearing the North Yorkshire singer/songwriter Stan Smith.

Thoughts on Cover:
Fairly straight ahead acoustic cover with strong singing from Smith.
