Dylan Cover #585 Chris Cornell "I Threw It All Away" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Chris Cornell doing a live cover of "I Threw It All Away" 

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
One of the brief sweet gems on Nashville Skyline as Dylan shows off his new vocal style with ease. The lyrics are direct about him screwing up a relationship. Mountains and rivers are blatantly sexual as the track breezes by with Dylan not all that broken up by his mistakes. More of a "Woah is me, oh well, moving on" feel to the country tinged ballad. A personal favorite off of this outlier album in Dylan's catalog.   


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Chris Cornell was a major voice in rock, fronting both Soundgarden and Audioslave

Thoughts on Cover:
Cornell's voice is something else, dramatic and he can over sing at times, but when he gets it right it is special.  A very neat cover, happy to have stumbled across this and yet one more reason to keep this Monday series going.
