Dylan Cover #618 Jessica Rhaye and the Ramshackle Parade "Blowin' In The Wind"

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 Jessica Rhaye and the Ramshackle Parade playing "Blowin' In The Wind"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
The classic Dylan song, if you asked 100 people to name you the first Bob Dylan song they thought of, or his best known song, I am guessing 95-99 of them would answer "Blowin' In The Wind".  It is an epic, vital song in the history of recorded music. The lyrics tell a stirring tale, the melody is enchanting, it is pretty spot on perfect, and when it originally came out if announced to the world the greatness that was/is/always will be Bob Dylan.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is our first time hearing Jessica Rhaye and the Ramshackle Parade

Thoughts on Cover:
A safe and pretty cover of the tune that is much closer to the Peter Paul and Mary version than the original, but fun none the less.
