Pretty self-explanatory I guess :mrgreen:
I'm wondering what your favorite version of this song is since in the past years we've got to hear a few previously unknown ones. Who knew there were so many recordings of this song?
My favorite version is the one included on Another Self Portrait (BS10) followed by the original B-Side version.

San Antonio! When I first heard it many many years ago I thought it's a BOTT outtake

I'm with you, I never thought the B-side could be topped, but the outtake was just a smidge better - or maybe it's just nice to hear something new but just as good. I'm liking the new rolling thunder one quite a bit, too, but the gold still goes to 1970.

Can someone offer links to all versions so we can do the Pepsi Challenge?

I always go back and forth in my mind between the B-side version and the 1976 live one.

I mean I could dig out the CDs and rip the necessary MP3s, or I could just open my PMs...

76 - Sounds the most passionate and true to the character of the singer

For around 20 years, the big-production version from Dylan was the only one I knew. At first I thought it was terrible, but one night I driving and it was at the end of the cassette I was listening to. I really enjoyed it. It's silly but it has character. I think it's the only one in the Lay lady lay voice.

I quite like all of them.

I wonder why Bob liked it so much that he had so many stabs at it over the years.

The B-Side version for me.
San Antonio is great, too.
