Dylan Cover #498 Sasha Robertson & Tim Robertson "Subterranean Homesick Blues" 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 Sasha Robertson & Tim Robertson playing "Subterranean Homesick Blues".

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we posted a cover version of this tune:
One of the most iconic songs from Dylan's most famous period and a very early showing of how powerful a music video could be. Dylan nods to beat poetry, current events, Chuck Berry's "No More Monkey Business", paranoia, and the Vietnam War all in around two minutes of linked lyrics over one of his earliest electric recordings. There is also the sly sense of humor which Dylan never gets enough credit for, while raging against the proverbial machine. A classic '60's tune in all respects and one non-Dylan fans usually love as well.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time RtBE has come across Sasha Robertson & Tim Robertson. Tim Robertson is a guitarist, composer, arranger, performer, and teacher located in New Orleans. That city will feature heavily next month on RtBE with Jazzfest on the horizon. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A straight ahead live acoustic cover of this speedy tune with electric guitar support.  A fun breezy take on the tune with a sped up vocal pace which charmingly rambles off the rails a bit. Happy Monday.
