Dylan Cover #467 Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin "You Ain't Going Nowhere" 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 Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin performing "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we addressed this cover:
A great song, and one that sounds so simple. It always felt to me that these are the kind of songs Dylan has seeping out of his pores, with lines like "Tailgates and Substitutes" that anywhere else would sound foolish yet here works wonders. The musical backing from the original Band version is loose and matched fantastically with the lyrics. I am sure it wasn't as easy going as it sounds on the final version, but what a gem of a track.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE enjoys all of these folk/country/rock artists
Thoughts on Cover:
This is such a smooth, well played live cover. The vocals from Cash Colvin and Chapin are simply pristine while the group harmonies and dynamics are perfect. Great guitars, great words, great singing voices; a top notch performance of this fun sized Dylan tune.
