Dylan Cover #544 Marc Maza "Million Miles" 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 Marc Maza playing "Million Miles"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
From the barren blues of Time Out Of Mind comes "Million Miles". While not a standout on that album, the song was prophetic, hinting at the fantastic twelve bar blues variations that would dominate Dylan's next two releases. When first heard though it doesn't jump out, just feels like yet ANOTHER solid track from the bard.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time RtBE has heard Marc Maza who is a French musician. 

Thoughts on Cover:
Maza puts in a lot of work on guitar, adding a sweet into, and random fills and runs but never takes away from the song. Maza is super talented and plays the blues on the acoustic with a flair for the dramatic. Definitely a cover worth hearing.
