Dylan Cover #481 Margot Cotten "One More Cup of Coffee" 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 from Margot Cotten and it is a version of "One More Cup Of Coffee" 

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 Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Bob's story tunes seemed to crest on Desire and "One More Cup Of Coffee" fits in the Western/Biblical/Mystical motif of both "Isis" and "Romance In Durango" but puts fourth a more ominous feel than either. Singing with Emmylou Harris on the original recording a haunting combo of voices which gets along perfectly with violins and other rag tag players from the sessions. A damn good song.

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 cover that sticks close to the original with excellent support from Louise Lhermitte on violin and backing vocals. One thing not mentioned all month is that English is Cotten's second language and by her dynamite vocals you would never know as she expertly handles all of Dylan's word play. 

It was a fun month showcasing Cotten's covers of Bob Dylan. As she states if you want to support her you can always send her money. Keep up to date with her projects as well.
