Dylan Cover #545 KneeDeep "Meet Me In The Morning"

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 KneeDeep playing "Meet Me In The Morning"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
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:
This is the first time we have heard KneeDeep, who are, Dave Smith - guitar and vocals Rocky Kramm - guitar and vocals Jay Cunningham - bass and vocals. 

Thoughts on Cover:
Hearing the bugs clicking and chattering around the porch, with the syrupy slow groove and vocals, make this one so sweet. The perfect late August live cover as KneeDeep do this one justice with their acoustic playing, and vocal harmonies. A really special treat of a listen.
