Dylan Cover #637 Eric Bettencourt & Band "She Belongs to Me" Live

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 Eric Bettencourt & Band playing "She Belongs To Me"

Thoughts on Original:
The first song in this series was a different cover of this track, here is what I wrote about it then and still feel the same way:
This is a gem of a song, a twisted tale that entwines beauty and deceit, darkness and sparkling Egyptian Red Rings. One of Dylan's best in it's mystery, elusiveness and bitter biting undertones; really pure Dylan and one of his all time classics.  Loved it when I first heard it, still love it today.


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is our first time listening to Eric Bettencourt & Band. Bettencourt is an Austin, TX based artist. His top notch band this go around is Richard Corson - Electric Guitar ||| Pete Genova - Bass ||| Charles C. Gagne - Drums.

Thoughts on Cover
A really cool, upbeat, jammy arrangement of the classic tune with great singing, guitar work and groove. Two guitar solos are dynamite as the band gets loose around the lyrics. A fantastic cover and yet another reason we keep this series running, constant pleasant surprises.  Happy Monday.
