Dylan Cover #525 Lukas Nelson & POTR "Meet Me In The Morning" 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 Lukas Nelson & POTR playing "Meet Me In The Morning"

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, Lukas Nelson & POTR who play the best festival in America on Sunday May 8th.

Thoughts on Original:
A swaggering track that rose out of the ashes of "Call Letter Blues" (which was later released on The Bootleg Series Volume 1-3) "Meet Me In The Morning" is a shot of blues after the blissfully mournful "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" as it kicks off side two of the famous Blood On The Tracks. The song is one of the ones Dylan recorded in NYC for Blood on the Tracks and it pulses with the city's energy. A cool note about this straight ahead song (which is tailored made for covering) is that Jack White is a big fan, playing it at times at his shows and got Dylan to perform it for the only time ever on 9/19/07 in Nashville, TN.  


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have seen Promise of the Real back up Neil Young live, featured them in our Full Show Friday's and reviewed them as well. A solid classic rock sounding, modern day band.  

Thoughts on Cover:
A relaxed walk through by the band, fairly straight ahead with a fun slide guitar solo and passionate singing from Nelson, with a lyric change to end. Stout if not too adventurous or fiery, as Nelson says "That's kinda OK!".
