Having recently come across this great concert from 2004 recently, I latched onto the terrific version of this song pretty quickly. I hadn't heard too many live renditions of it but this one was incredible. What a bitchin song! A nasty little number that sounds like utter shit on Empire Burlesque, this version brings out the true nature of these lyrics...brutally honest, painfully illustrated by Dylan's powerful and monstrous voice.
The band destroys it along with him. George kicks it way faster than the original, Larry's bad-ass cops are all over this and Bob answers in kind with a brilliant harp solo.
I truly love this one!!!

Regardless, I'm a new fan of this song and am delighted to see there have been many throughout the years. Any great ones others may suggest??

Here's mine:

The studio version is fine. I like it. The live performance is great and evidence the song should be a regular in the setlist.

Have to say I love Empire Burlesque including the all-the-way-80s sound, and this is one of my favorite songs on there. Lots of versions have rocked live but my favorite is still the album cut.

Berlin '96 comes to mind. Excellent version but not even a highlight this night.

I don't care what anyone says. I love this song!!
It's got such a bitchin bass line, Bob's lyrics are very very cool and nasty,with the Queens it was explosive, and in the right band's hands (foreshadowing...),
the song can be a downright barnburner.

Following its abysmal debut on Empire Burlesque, the song was placed into the able hand of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
who had so much fun with it, I half wish Tom would've picked it up and carried it with him as his own....
That said, there are so many great ones they did together from their couple of years.
Here's my two faves:
This one is my all-time favorite. It's such a fiery performance, but especially listen for Benmont's bad-ass piano playin'....

Stockholm Sweden
September 26 1987

And my runner up is Farm Aid from 1986
because you get to see Bob in his crazy outfit & to see how much fun they're all having:):

It's a pretty decent song. Not one of my favorites.

It sets some zingy quick fire Bogart lines to an ersatz disco backing and then fast-forwards through the doomed romance of a double-crossed investigator and his untrustowrthy client in a slightly overheated film noir.

Thanks.

Tragically, ifitwastruetennessee was halfway through writing this post when his loft collapsed on him, leaving his sentence uncompleted forever.

Anyone from 1987, really. Love the backing vocals.

Can't post any right now, though. Maybe someone else can.

Bob employed a new arrangement for this song in 96 and 97. It's a lot of fun and on
certain nights, Bob and Co. would nail it and everyone could once again see why this song
was diamond in the rough from EB.
It's a song I always kind of liked...a bit schizophrenic and desperate, sure, but that's Bob at times....
Anyway, it's a great rocker that I'd love to get see get pulled out again in some weird way:)

Here's a tight little rendition from Spring 97:

That was a pretty fun night. Good choice.
The song is WAY better live than the album take.

A fantastic choice, perhaps the best of the NET.

My favourite has always been from St. Paul, 2002. Bob's phrasing and his ever-so-slightly ragged vocal delivery make it such a killer performance. Rips the studio version to shreds.

I was watching an old Clint Eastwood movie last night called Bronco Billy and
as Clint pulls away to go look for a woman Scatman Crothers asks him what kind of girl he's gonna find,
he replies:
'I'm gonna find one who rides like Annie Oakley and shoots like Belle Starr!!'

Of course, I had to pull out the song but the one on EB doesn't quite cut it...
But I've been slowly working through Nellie's 1992 awesome comps and this killer rendition came up on rotation this morning....
coincidence I think not.

It's a pretty amped up version, Bob's on fire and the new guy in the band, Bucky Baxter, kills it on the steel guitar.

So many great lines. Its such a fun song and album.

I think maybe we’d better leave each other alone"

Effectively corralled wild Bogart lines. Noice.

A passionate take on this song offered here!!
Bob at Tramps is one of my favorite shows that year.
Tramps was a cool little venue that Bob used as a warmup gig for the Garden the next night.
However, I prefer this show by a mile with a Visions that is now legendary.
He followed that song with this one and you can feel how 'on' he is just by his
slippery delivery of this, one of my favorite Dylan numbers.
