Dylan Cover #627 Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue playing "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

All April (and the first week of May) RtBE focuses our Monday Dylan Cover Series on artists who are playing this years New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Today is Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue who plays the festival this Saturday April 27th

Thought's on Original:
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
We have caught snippets of Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue on past NOLA trips. Perhaps on this one we will take in a full set.

Thoughts on Cover
A gorgeous, crisp, country twanging version of this Dylan classic from Holiday and the Revue. Definitely worth a listen to the breezy and strong version.
