Dylan Cover #470 Dean Heckel "I Shall Be Released" 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 Dean Heckel  playing "I Shall Be Released"

Thoughts on Cover:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
"I Shall Be Released" has been covered by too many artists to count and with reason; it is a masterpiece. A simple song that will forever be etched in Rock Legend as it ended perhaps the best concert in rock history, The Last WaltzThe Band are always connected to the tune as Dylan wrote it during those amazing days playing with the group up at Big Pink in the Catskills and the group released it on their first album. Gospel in nature the song is about salvation that can be certain, and each listener (and performer) can add their own personal feelings into the sketch, perfect for covering, especially live to close a show with friends.


Thoughts on Cover Artist: 
This is RtBE's first time hearing Dean Heckel

Thoughts on Cover:
A fine live acoustic cover that we appreciate more than the patrons who are watching Dean live in this video.
