Dylan Cover #584 Eliza Gilkyson - "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" Live from Austin, TX

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

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
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:
This is RtBE's first time hearing Eliza Gilkyson who is a Taos, New Mexico-based folk musician.

Thoughts on Cover:
A cool cover that starts simple and acoustic with just Gilkyson, but swells with a southwestern folk flair. Gilkyson's vocals are strong in front of the accomplished musicians.
