Dylan Cover #477 Margot Cotten "Simple Twist of Fate"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Margot Cotten and is a live cover of "Simple Twist of Fate 

This month we are doing another special focus in RtBE's Dylan Covers series. In the past we have highlighted The ByrdsCoulson-Dean-McGuiness-FlintThe HolliesJoan OsbourneMountainBetty LeVette , Reggae Covers and more

This month we highlight Margot Cotten who we have featured twice earlier in this series, but now devote the full month to her Dylan Covers.

Thoughts On Original:
From the first time we talked about a cover version of this song:
Well the classics just keep coming in this series, now here is "Simple Twist of Fate" what a gem of a song.  Impeccable lyrics, gorgeous phrasing, just a great great song that is hard not to enjoy even if people are not fans of Dylan.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE dig her sound and style. From Cotten's bio: Margot Cotten is the only French girl who can actually play americana without blushing. Playing drums, guitars and keys, she is a multi-talented singer songwriter. Make sure to watch her new videos on Sundays. She plays covers by Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Elton John, Cat Stevens, The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, Neil Young etc as well as her own material.

Thoughts on Cover:
A great straight ahead acoustic live cover version by Cotten delivered with grace and passion. This is a combo that will reappear all month from this artist as she is a excellent performer of Dylan's tunes.
