Thus begins the epic transformation of this perfect song in 1966.

That's always hot.

I hated the song on the 74 tour, it's one of the worst from that tour.
Ultimately though, I loved it's flirty return to its acoustic roots on the RTR with his sexually yearning growls and playful harmonica solos.
My personal fave being from Boston:

Just ran across this rendition on a comp I listened to recently and I've grown
a little addicted to it....
It is weird that Bob has pulled this one out so much over the years, but judging
by this performance, it has terrific lyrics and a wonderful chord progression
that I'm sure they always enjoy giving a shot...

Regardless, Bob sounds like he's having a lot of fun here and the harp solo
tops it off perfectly...

Biograph one has long been a fave of mine. Mickey Jones' howitzer bass drum and the whole feel of how it's played there. Garth is great on it too.

Based on the many spirited versions of this little gem over the years, it seems Bob is quite fond of the song. I am too!
I don't think I saw this jaunty 2011 version in the thread. I think it has a great vocal--oscillating between rueful and swaggering & lots of points between--where the gravel is mixed with a bit of smoother singing. Also features a dramatic and focused harp break.

Man, how I miss those days from 2007. I loved Denny Freeman and if you
listen to his solo here, you'll see why. He wasn't as instinctually inventive as Freddy
but by 2007,he was really starting to refine his playing and his solos were always smile-inducing for me.
But the band overall really cooks here. Im not sure if its the crowd, Bob, or just this particular song
but they're really into it! George is really killing it here especially...
And Bob delivers the song as if he's reading a diary entry: funny, endearing and more than a little aggressive:)
Check it out:

I first heard this song in 1989 when I was 18 and living with my brother in Edmonton. I wasn't into Dylan at all yet, but he had Biograph so I checked it out. I didn't mind the compilation at the time, but when I don't believe You came on, it floored me. Still does. I like the original too, but not as much. I'm looking forward to checking out the Last Waltz version.
