Dylan Cover #619 Beth Orton & M. Ward - "Buckets of Rain"

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 Beth Orton & M. Ward playing "Buckets of Rain"

Thoughts on Original:
From our first take on a cover of this tune:
Dylan's mid career masterpiece closes out with this song and to me it always seemed tacked on whimsically.  After going through a ton of raw emotion with "Idiot Wind" and other tunes, Blood on the Tracks finishes with this ditty.  Honestly never one of my favorites, it acted more as a palate cleanser and a sweet one at that. 


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Have reviewed M Ward here before and have enjoyed Beth Orton when we have heard her as well. 

Thoughts on Cover
A gorgeous acoustic duet for this cover, which changes the meaning of the original lyrics by having two distinct voices sing it. Excellent all around.
