Dylan Cover #446 Emmett Sherlock "Million Miles"

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Emmett Sherlock playing "Million Miles"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
From the barren blues of Time Out Of Mind comes "Million Miles". While not a standout on that album, the song was prophetic, hinting at the fantastic twelve bar blues variations that would dominate his next two releases. When first heard though it doesn't jump out, just feels like yet ANOTHER solid track from the bard.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have not heard of Emmett Sherlock before, but he is a singer songwriter from Ontario, Canada who writes songs and does arraignments of covers of artists like Dylan, Zevon and Waits. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A raw simple blues, stripped down acoustic offering, that is very powerful in it's sparse arraignment and fierce singing from Sherlock.
