    Great song. His judgment took a bit of a nosedive in the 80′s but you could make a really great comp of that decade with gems like this. Brownesville Girl’s another one.

    Even the dog liked it.

  2. Eoin Says:

    Couldn’t agree more. In fact, I think Brownsville Girl is probably the best song Dylan has written (or co-written w/ Sam Shepard) in the last 30 year. Reckon the only reason it’s never on any Best of compilations is its length. Also Blind Willie McTell, Ring Them Bells, Gotta Serve Somebody…
