Funny how no one notices the musicianship behind stuff like this.  This is a superb riff, hooky even.  Some crazy drumming, a wistful organ.  Much more going on besides Bob's singing.

Almost 25 years ago I lived in an apartment building on 3rd St. in Brooklyn. Neighbors on my floor would have regular Dylan singalong parties. 6, 8 people knew most of the lyrics and they'd be in the unit across the hall Rolling Stoning Rainy Day Womening Memphis and Tombstone Bluesing until midnight. The knowledge and the passion was incredible.

When I saw Bob in concert in Oct, he did not have his Nobel prize in display. Bummer.

However, he did have a grammy showcase on his piano.  

Gosh...what an ego!

Ahhhhh....the age old insights raised by Bob Dylan.

Perhaps Bob will do more of this at his upcoming Nobel Prize event.  
    

 
you and I might be the few 10 raters for this track, apparently not so many also like BD; an overall 6.5 rating, seriously?

What I think is amazing about BD the performer, is not just how many freaking songs he knows, but that he can (for the most part) remember the lyrics to all of them.  That's some crazy lifelong obsession to music there (or as he has stated, a soul selling deal with the devil allows him all these talents) and I for one appreciate the hell out of his music.

Long Live RP and Bob Dylan!

PS - When BD dies in the next decade or so, I hope to be able to attend his funeral.  And no other famous person has ever elicited that sort of reaction from me (since Jim M died before I was born :-( )

Neither did I until I was challenged by a writing teacher.

Sometime, go stand on a corner and try to write allegories or metaphors to fit your observations.  Afterwards, I expect you'll have a new appreciation.

Too bad is all I can say.  I LOVE this song.  Maybe you just had to be there..  or actually lived some of this..  hard to explain, but I love that RP plays things like this.  But I sort of get it - I don't get Talking Heads..  or Opera..

The singing is so annoying that I gave it a 7 for the attempt to get us all annoyed and not notice the fairly good lyrics.

What I find odd is the strong dislike this song elicits from so many listeners to this eclectic station. In a world where Arrowsmith songs still pollute the air in apparent perpetuity, I feel there is no shame in appreciating genuinely transgressive music. So there, you PSD types!

Mr. Zimmerman is definitely an acquired taste. I had a guitar teacher years ago that was a Bob Dylan wack a doo. He spent more time talking about ol Bob than teaching guitar. Drove me nuts and back to my drum kit.   {#Drummer}

Earlier that day, Dylan had been writing, and he continued to do so in the studio, revising lyrics and changing the song's structure as he recorded different takes. Eventually, a master take, the twentieth and final take, was chosen after recording the song for three hours.  Take five would eventually be released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7.

Opinion on this runs the gamut, but consider the times it was released into! Radical! Having fun! I really liked hearing it in a set with Hey St. Peter; it's so fun to hear how vocal inflections and timing can be used as part of the instrumentation/ arrangement of a song...

Go do something else.  I ran to my computer to turn up the volume so I could enjoy this incredible song one more time (of many dozens).  Thanks RP for playing great music.
