Definitely one of my favorite Dylan songs - Top 5 probably.

My favorite part is the final verse, specifically;

Beauty walks a razors edge
Someday I'll make it mine


Bob does a really touching rendition in Saskatoon this year on the 8th of October, with actual singing :D and everything.

Come in. I'll give ya shelter from the storm

Suddenly I turned around and she was standin' there
With silver bracelets on her wrists and flowers in her hair.
She walked up to me so gracefully and took my crown of thorns.
"Come in," she said,
"I'll give you shelter from the storm."
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is top 5 Dylan phrase for me…

Male narrator has to “turn around” ~ change perspective~ to see her…from there the imagery and feel of "suffering" becomes inverted if you will, to "beauty and grace": she has silver bracelets (re-fashioned steel spikes through narrator’s wrists) and flowers (without thorns) in her hair. It all starts with the power of perception...turning around...the “weapons of pain and suffering”, thorns & spikes, give way to ornament and comfort, bracelets and flowers, in a graceful female form. Amazing.

Conjures a heroine from a John William Waterhouse painting to me.

Sometimes I fantasize about paying my ticket money for a Bob show
& being transported to any year in Dylan history.
Not really any show per se (though that happens too),
but a year where certain arrangements are being used, a certain voice is being applied,
and a band is coming together or falling apart....

And as any Dylan fan knows, any random show from any year may contain a song that
just works where it hadn't yet.....

My point in all this is that I've been listening to that beautiful show from New York 1994
and the groovin Shelter From The Storm arrangement that he had been working on that year
hits its stride at this glorious show and Bob & those boys knock it out of the park...
Great solos, committed vocal and in perfect sound to boot....

^ that's my favorite...better even than those much-loved 1995 versions, imo.

No love has been shown yet for the groovy countrified versions from the late 90's.
Bob started working it in 96 and it just got better year after year.
Bob kicked off 1998 at The Garden and this song was certainly a stand-out:

The following year was such a great year all round
but this song was a fantastic standout in Carbondale, the first rendition from that terrific year....

A version of Shelter From The Storm released on the Jerry Maguire soundtrack album was a previously unknown and unreleased one that had been recorded during the Blood On The Tracks sessions.

While I am a bit late to this thread, the Blood on the Tracks outtake version that nellie references is wonderful. Highest possible recommendation.

yes! that one is incredible. it has to be one of my all-time favorite dylan recordings.

"If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born..."

I once read that this song could be interpreted as being about the Church and he did eventually seek shelter there. The Church is often referred to as the Bride of Christ, mystically and eternally co-existent with the Divine. There are hints of these themes in Long and Wasted Years also. Another onion of a song by Mr Dylan.

It is so damn cool to watch Bob's performances back then. I wish they would release the Hard Rain show on DVD. I know a lot of people have a copy of it, but I do not. I've seen it, but I'd like to have it and be able to play it anytime. It's really great stuff, and one of my favorite era's of Bob's illustrious career.

During the credits at the end of the movie St. Vincent, they played Shelter From The Storm while Bill Murray's character was horsing around in the back yard after recovering from a stroke and everybody came together in the end. Was sort of heartwarming.

For those that haven't seen and heard it, here's our Bob, 19 years on from Hard Rain, sepia stalking that Prague stage.

If only we could shelter from the storms of time, eh?

Weeeell, bizarrely enough, one may be able to turn back those clocks after all:

Don't know about the guitar.
But does anyone know if that's Howie Wyeth on drums?

It looks like an Airline guitar... Back then they sold some of their guitars through Montgomery Wards. :shock:


Here is the one Jack White plays...

Not sure how I was unaware of the version from the Jerry Maguire soundtrack, but wow. Beautiful. Makes you wonder what other gems from the BOTT sessions are sitting in the vault.

This gorgeous one-off from Gothenburg last year is quite special to these ears.
Bob comes center stage on this song and delivers this beautiful ballad as if it were the
first time he'd sung it. In fact, I could see this version standing alongside these songs from Shadows In The Night....

Girl Of The North Country got a lot of deserved praise from this show, but this Shelter
was my favorite highlight...
Let's hope Bob brings back a few of these gems into the setlist. I'd love to hear this song again....

I also have to admit I'm still fond of the skippingly melodic versions in 1991...seriously...Wolftrap is a good example.


I also love those versions Smoke!!
I just happened to come across a great one from 1989,
in fact this is from Tony's official first show I believe...
It's gut-bucket rock n roll for sure, but it has such an immediacy that's just infectious!!
I love the breakdowns in the middle of the song, I'm always amazed by GE Smith's inventive solos
and I miss Bob's crazy harp solos that sound like he's gonna break that thing:)
And what a crazy ending!!!

I've discovered a very cool version from the rehearsal tapes that
Bob and his band from 1984 performed in LA right before they went on the road.
A fiery Bob with a cool New Wave 80's version.
I've always loved 1984 and find it underrated.
This is just a chill rendition that finds an inventive Bob in terrific voice
with a groovy band playing one of Bob's finest songs:
