Dylan Cover #497 Turtlefoot Band "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Turtlefoot Band performing "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" 

Thoughts on Original:
(From the first time in this series we tackled a cover of this song)
A rambling transitional tune from Dylan as he moved from folk to his rock phase backed by The Hawks and push that wild thin mercury sound which Dylan was just starting to dabble in. Perhaps because of it's rarity, not appearing on any official album it is always a joy to listen to when it pops up, but there are better tracks in this vein such as the unfinished "She's Your Lover Now" but that is a whole separate post....


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time we are hearing Turtlefoot Band, but they seemed to do a whole night of Dylan Covers so they may show back up here again. Info on the band and performance from the youtube page:  Turtlefoot Band. With Ron Merritt, Matt Law, Larry Hayes, John Hebert, Aaron Bearden, and Steve Henley.  Backstage Pass Series, Bay Arts Alliance, Marina Civic Center in Panama City Fl. August 28, 2015

Thoughts on Cover:
While the audio on the recording is not professional, the actual playing, performance and especially the vocals are all top notch. This is a well done cover of a rare Dylan tune which makes for a great listen.
