Dylan Cover #556 Linda Vogel "I Want You"

 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 Linda Vogel singing "I Want You" 

Thoughts on Original:
(From the first time we tackled a cover of this song)
A song that fits the Gemini Dylan like a glove; direct lyrical yearning chorus with verses that meander about introducing characters like roadblocks in the way of true love. It was the last tune written for the mega Blonde on Blonde and a song he and others (it was Al Kooper's favorite) admired so much he almost titled the album after it. Never a track that jumps to the top of peoples "favorites" or "best of" Dylan lists but one that really nails what the artist is all about in some of the simplest terms.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is our first time coming across Linda Vogel. She is a a French singer/harpist and you can grab her music and info here

Thoughts on Cover:
An interesting version that goes for more yearning with Vogel's but also gets a bit of a hip hop beat injection half way through which cuts the burning desire of the vocals. A unique cover for this November Monday.
