Dylan Cover #549 Rod Stewart "Love Minus Zero/No Limit"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Rod Stewart and is a cover of "Love Minus Zero/No Limit".

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
A personal gateway song, the first Dylan love offering that truly spoke to me was "Love Minus Zero/No Limit". It is an easy song to like, with it's sweet melody and one that gets deeper and deeper the more you contemplate the lyrics. Dylan uses some insane imagery to put true love into words with surreal phrasing that delivers the goods in a way that is tough to describe. In one sense, this is peak Dylan, moving with grace, describing things uniquely and just out of reach.  


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE offices are split on Stewart, some love, some not so much...Have written about him in the past...

Thoughts on Cover:
Could be our least favorite cover in this whole series, so overly dramatic for a song that doesn't need it.
