Dylan Cover #472 Backwoods Jupiter "Romance In Durango" 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 Backwoods Jupiter playing "Romance In Durango"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover version of this song:
Containing the best opening line of any Dylan song (which places it high on the list of best opening lines of any song ever) "Romance In Durango" is a movie played out over violins, words, dead bodies, love, adventure and life. A western tinged Dylan tune that talks about a horse taking him to Durango. A fantastic burst of creative songwriting and exhilarating playing it is a timelessly fantastic tune.

Thoughts On Cover Artist:
RtBE is first finding out about Backwoods Jupiter but they may show up again in this series as they cover Dylan often.

Thoughts On Cover:
A full on band with accordion, mandolin, washboard and more make this a very faithful cover, but also lets the players express themselves and get down.
