Dylan Cover #527 Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires "The Man in Me" 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 Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires playing "The Man In Me"

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, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit who play the best festival in America on Saturday April 30th.

Thoughts on Original:
Almost a forgotten throw away track from Bob, which proves how great he really is, this peach of a song originally appeared on New Morning. The famous La-la-la's are so unlike Bob it instantly stands out as unique in his back catalog. "The Man In Me" is playful, loving, sincere yet deceptive. It took on an added life after showing up in the cult classic The Big Lebowski and now has a whole new generation digging its quirky sounds.  


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE are big fans of Isbell, Shires and the Whole 400 Unit having seen them, reviewed them, and written about them a bunch

Thoughts on Cover:
Fantastic, like most music Isbell and Shires touch. A little more gravity than Dylan's original, but the duet is a gem on every level, from Jason's vocals to shires violin, A+ stuff.
