Dylan Cover #441 JC Lodge "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by JC Lodge playing "Don't Think Twice It's Alright".

This month we are doing another special focus in RtBE's Dylan Covers series. In the past we have highlighted The ByrdsCoulson-Dean-McGuiness-FlintThe HolliesJoan OsbourneMountainBetty LeVette and more. Now the spotlight shines on various reggae artists from Is It Rolling Bob? A Reggae Tribute to Bob Dylan.  
We have covered a song from this collection in our Dylan Cover Series before, so we will skip Toots this month even though that is a good one from this collection.
Thought's on Original:
This song is so iconic and flat out awesome, even people who dislike Dylan have to enjoy this tune right? Biting and yet not bitter, a toss off of the grandest proportions, "Don' Think Twice, It's All Right" is epic and yet so straight forwardly simple. It easily ranks as one of the bard's best works, truly a classic and has been covered by so many people in so many ways.
Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE is new to JC Lodge. 
Thoughts on Cover:
Not our favorite cover. This one falls into the easy listening section far too easily with programmed drums and soft floating vocals and soprano sax.
