Dylan Cover #460 Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer " Not Dark Yet" Live

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. This week we have Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer doing a live cover of "Not Dark Yet".

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
A excellent Dylan tune from any era but one that in particular screamed "I'm Still Alive And Kickin'!" on Time Out Of Mind at a phase when Dylan was simply an after thought in current popular music scene. One of Dylan's most haunting tracks; it is hard not to feel his emotions and finality of the coming darkness as Dylan sings this lyric set.  An all-time great that is mysterious, foreboding, honest and powerful. First class Bob.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is RtBE's first time hearing this sister duo. 

Thoughts on Cover:
This song was always the choice to close out 2020 on the Dylan Cover front from RtBE. This version is stunning.

As always, thanks for reading.
