Dylan Cover #542 Emmylou Harris "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Emmylou Harris performing a live cover of "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" 

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
A simple little number coming off of John Wesley Harding it discards the lyrical wizardry for a down home spin.  We are rewarded with easy bliss, not often found in Dylan tunes. The emotions displayed by the singer here are heartfelt, hearty and easy going, just like the tune as a whole. Always a pleasant ride, bring that bottle over here...   


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE has always enjoyed Emmylou Harris, but never totally dove into her albums or live shows. Will hopefully do that soon. 

Thoughts on Cover
Fantastic cover, putting the country swagger into the tune with simple strumming and soaring, powerfully strong vocals. Excellent all around.
