Review by HHCCCCAA

HHCCCCAA I really love this cover of Dylan's "I Shall Be Released", which was of course famously covered by The Band with Richard Manuel on vocals. R.I.P. Richard Manuel. A beautiful tune amd Manuel really made it his own. Anyhoot, in this version I love the diversity in vocals. I was surprised to hear that Page didn't try to hit the consistent highs that Manuel made notable, Page instead leave the highs to Neil in the second verse. Sarah McLachlan's voice is BEAUTIFUL in the background of the chorus, and I need not say more about Neil but this: if you've loved his music like I and so many others have, you just know what his voice can do. Trey's voice is obviously not nearly as good as Neil's or Sarah's but I thought he held his own pretty well with his verse. I thought Trey infused some real raw emotion on to those few lines ... How could he NOT on stage with The Legend Young???? I liked Trey's crack at the mic better than Page's for surely. Just a great cover, IMHO, and a properly and honorably respectful ode to The Band. If you've never heard the "original cover" (lol), go check it out RIGHT NOW. ("I Shall Be Released" by The Band; Written by Bob Dylan)
