Dylan Cover #520 Casper and The Bad Spirits with Cassandra Church "Love Sick"

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 Casper and The Bad Spirits with Cassandra Church playing "Love Sick" live.

Thoughts on Original:
From our first cover take on this song:
The opener on Dylan's 1997 classic Time Out Of Mind, signaled to the world, that the old bard had tons of great songs left in him. Considered by some (not RtBE) his comeback album Time Out Of Mind showcased stark songs with biting lyrics and most importantly lush sounding production; Dylan ditched modern sound for one he liked better. The result was a true winner. Dylan identified with every human via the lyric, "I'm sick of love/and I'm in the thick of it" Who hasn't been there? A great song that kicks off a great album.


Thoughts On Cover Artist:
Like lots of artists in this series I have never heard of Casper and The Bad Spirits with Cassandra Church before this live cover. 

Thoughts On Cover:
The energy is certainly on point for this cover that owes more to The White Stripes cover of the tune than the original. While the lyrics are a bit fast and loose, the point of this cover is a powerful set closer and the band delivers.
