Dylan Cover #581 Axel Cabela "One More Cup of Coffee"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Axel Cabela playing "One More Cup of Coffee"

Thoughts on Dylan Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Bob's story tunes seemed to crest on Desire and "One More Cup Of Coffee" fits in the Western/Biblical/Mystical motif of both "Isis" and "Romance In Durango" but puts fourth a more ominous feel than either. Singing with Emmylou Harris on the original recording a haunting combo of voices which gets along perfectly with violins and other rag tag players from the sessions. A damn good song.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time RtBE has heard Axel Cabela. He has a few covers posted to his Youtube account. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A strong acoustic version with perfect violin, backing vocals and a touch of angry singing from Cabela which switches up the song a bit in my brain. Excellent interpretation.
