Dylan Cover #592 Waylon Jennings "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Waylon Jennings playing " Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"

Thought's on Original:
From the first time we reviewed a cover of this tune:
This song is so iconic and flat out awesome, even people who dislike Dylan have to enjoy this tune right? Biting and yet not bitter, a toss off of the grandest proportions, "Don' Think Twice, It's All Right" is epic and yet so straight forwardly simple. It easily ranks as one of the bard's best works, truly a classic and has been covered by so many people in so many ways.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Waylon Jennings is an Outlaw Country legend. 

Thoughts on Cover:
...That said, this is from an earlier part of his career when he was fairly straight, and he delivers a straight version of the tune. Yet, covering Dylan in 1964 for a country artist could be outlaw-ish. A fun little countrified ditty to start off the work week.
