Dylan Cover #567 Avett Brothers "Tangled Up In Blue" 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 Avett Brothers performing "Tangled Up In Blue" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this track:
Wow. The song that never ends, the tune that might just best sum up Dylan, if that is remotely possible. Dylan constantly toyed with this song (check out the Rolling Thunder and Real Live version's if you haven't yet) and even he knows it can't stay stagnant in one form for long, so covering it is a good bet.  Needless to say it is in the top 5 greatest songs he ever wrote if we were ranking them...hmm.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
RtBE have reviewed the Avett's in the past, they are fine, but we never really got into them. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A very upbeat cover that gets after it and includes the 80's influenced female backing vocals. While it never truly soars, it is a fun live version of this fantastic song.
