Dylan Cover #571 Sarah Jarosz "Meet Me In The Morning" 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 Sarah Jarosz 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 actually the second time we are featuring Sarah in this series.  Way back in 2015 she graced cover #188, doing her version of "Simple Twist of Fate". Wow, this series has been going on forever...Oh and Jarosz is legit. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A live take from the 2011 Winnipeg Folk Festival's "If Licks Could Kill" workshop. It seems off the cuff as the players just seem to be playing together for the first time.  Great pickin', a few lost words, and good times had by all.
