Dylan Cover #488 Nahara ft. Bill Bottrell "I Want You"

 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 Nahara ft. Bill Bottrell singing "I Want You" 

Thoughts on Original:
(From the first time we tackled a cover of this song)
A song that fits the Gemini Dylan like a glove; direct lyrical yearning chorus with verses that meander about introducing characters like roadblocks in the way of true love. It was the last tune written for the mega Blonde on Blonde and a song he and others (it was Al Kooper's favorite) admired so much he almost titled the album after it. Never a track that jumps to the top of peoples "favorites" or "best of" Dylan lists but one that really nails what the artist is all about in some of the simplest terms.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is our first time coming across Nahara and Bill Bottrell.

Thoughts on Cover:
The duet vocals are very nice, working well on this fairly straight ahead cover that focuses on the singing. Good stuff.
