Dylan Cover #537 The Kennedys "Chimes of Freedom" Live

Continuing our ongoing Monday's Dylan Cover Series, this week we present The Kennedys performing a live cover of "Chimes of Freedom" .

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
This song is a giant one in Bob's catalog, but it has always been one of the classic Dylan anthems that never really struck a chord with RtBE.  For some reason when we talk about Dylan moving from protest singer to full on poetic songwriter, this is the tune that comes to mind. It seems to be stuck between those two worlds and the version on Another Side Of Bob Dylan just doesn't connect on many personal levels. I may be in the minority but this has never been a great Dylan song in my eyes...which in-turn does make it ripe to cover... 

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time we are hearing The Kennedys

Thoughts on Cover:
Fun story to start.  Good live cover with playing and harmonies. Figured this was a good one for today, Happy Fourth of July here in the USA.
