Dylan Cover #502 Heartless Bastards & Charlie Musselwhite "You Ain't Going Nowhere" 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 Heartless Bastards & Charlie Musselwhite performing "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" 

This month we have a special focus on artists who will be playing the 2021 Jazzfest in New Orleans. Today we highlight Charlie Musselwhite who played Saturday October 9th

Once again Jazzfest is canceled due to Covid. Hopefully it happens in April-May of 2022.

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we addressed this cover:
A great song, and one that sounds so simple. It always felt to me that these are the kind of songs Dylan has seeping out of his pores, with lines like "Tailgates and Substitutes" that anywhere else would sound foolish yet here works wonders. The musical backing from the original Band version is loose and matched fantastically with the lyrics. I am sure it wasn't as easy going as it sounds on the final version, but what a gem of a track.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE enjoys all of these blues/rock artists. While the Heartless Bastards aren't playing Jazzfest, Charlie Musselwhite did. So we will end this month with this mix and match cover for a mix and match Jazzfest experience. The good news is, the next one is only a few months away....(HOPEFULLY!)
Thoughts on Cover:
A very cool video that shows the behind the scenes and the performance and Musselwhite's harp is powerful. Very cool live cover version.
