Dylan Cover #469 Christy Myers "Mr. Tambourine Man"

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 Christy Myers playing "Mr. Tambourine Man".  

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
C'mon...really?  Iconic, one of his best known songs.  A poetic marvel, beautifully played etc etc...essays are written on this song consistently.  I won't say much more, but will note that I read somewhere this is the one song Dylan actually tried to work with again and create another version; a part two so to speak and it just didn't work.  Hard to recreate this gem. 


Thoughts on artist:
This is RtBE's first time hearing Christy Myers

Thoughts on the cover:
A direct solid acoustic cover of this classic song complete with harmonica. Good stuff.
