This is the song that did me in. The writer bears the blame. Of course after that it was all me.

Well, crap. Now I'll have to dig through my old CDs (wherever they may be) and track down this concert. From memory it was the second best of the week, with the 21st my favourite, mainly due to the insane energy created from first time played Rumble, Million Dollar Bash, Waitin' For You and London Calling. What a night.

Never realized until now that "Shelter" draws from the first verse of Genesis (King James version) and is thereby connected to "Spirit on the Water":

"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."

"Void of form"--perhaps this direct connection is already familiar to others, but certainly new to me.

I always consider that this song goes hand-in-hand with One More Cup of Coffee (Valley Below). I believe that they are intrinsically linked and that you cannot fully appreciate one without listening to the other.

They are not just great song lyrics, they are modern day classic literature opuses of dystopian complexity ... sublime works that eclipse even the greatest of ancient Greek and Latin tragedies.

These are songs that have been penned by the souls of Socrates, Homer and Ovid... per se, present day masterpieces.

After always loving the album version more, I've really been coming around to the Jerry Maguire outtake version. Love the additional verse and Dylan going solo is always a treat during this period.
