Dylan Cover #524 Billy Strings "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" 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 Billy Strings playing " Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"

Every April (and first week of May) we have a special focus in our ongoing Monday Bob Dylan Cover Series on artists who will be playing Jazzfest in New Orleans. Today we highlight, Billy Strings who plays the best festival in America on Thursday May 5th.

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
This song is so iconic and flat out awesome, even people who dislike Dylan have to enjoy this tune right? Biting and yet not bitter, a toss off of the grandest proportions, "Don' Think Twice, It's All Right" is epic and yet so straight forwardly simple. It easily ranks as one of the bard's best works, truly a classic and has been covered by so many people in so many ways.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have reviewed and hyped Billy Strings in the past, even when he played in New Orleans previously. Perhaps down in Jazzfest we will finally catch him live on "Locals Thursday".

Thoughts on Cover:
A fantastic cover that combines Billy's expert bluegrass picking with Dylan's excellent lyrics as Billy seems to be able to pull these gems out all the time. A great way to kick off a month of hyping Jazzfest and all the amazing artists playing down there.
