The version from Portland Dec. 80 is the definitive version for me. Sung with more warmth and passion than the album version.


This statement may be true....It's a tremendous version for sure.
I wonder who Victoria is???

'I'm gonna play this song here for somebody who, anytime we come to Portland comes to see me, a young girl I met in Durango Mexico 1972. She's out there somewhere I know. Are you out there?
Then I'll play it...
Anyway, her name is Victoria and she's a happily married young lady now...I think.'

That's an amazing Joey, no doubt.

Senor is an awesome song, my favourite one from that record.

Willie Nelson also did an awesome version of it. It's on the soundtrack to "I'm Not There".

This is one of those songs that sometimes I like, and sometimes I don't.

enough to attend three of...
He had just changed the lineup again after Freddy Koella moved on and Denny Freeman was added.
Though he came to be much derided, in the beginning Bob gave Denny free rein to deliver some gorgeous solos that
I'll never forget honestly...
To add to the flavor of this new band, Bob had onboard the amazing violinist Elana Fremerman from Hot Club of Cowtown to guest,
She stood center stage for all to ogle at:)

Of all three nights I attended, this song stood out as being one of the highest points of the week for me:
Bob dives in without any preparation and what follows is a slow-burning and musically realized version of Senor, complete with weeping violin, a stellar guitar solo, a weird & slightly terrifying vocal delivery, and a harp solo that brought the house to its feet with applause....
an unforgettable performance...

Does anyone have any opinion (what am I saying?) on the best 78 performance of Senor?

Sure, he does a decent Senor. And even a better Jack-a-Roe, but the best Senor is done by the Senor hisself. The only question is: What performance surpasses the others (forget 78, let's say of all time, then). I'm leaning towards Genuine Real Live 1984 and/or Italy 1998.

Besides being my favorite Dylan song when I am at the laundromat, I would love to hear Neil Young w/ Crazy Horse cover it. The song has always seemed like one that would be great for a garage band that just needed a tune and some lyrics to jam to for a really long time, and Neil w/ Crazy Horse fits that bill better than anyone.

Oh, yes, yes, yes! Just look what he did to "This Wheel's on Fire". Man alive, that'd be somethin'.

I don't know which is better, but I love both Seattle & Charlotte from '78. Mind you, both are very different vocally from the Street-Legal version, but the passion in Bob's singing is infectious, and that huge band just rips through the instrumental sections. Can't go wrong with either one of those.

A real corker of a performance is this one from 1998.
Bob sings the holy hell out of this song and sounds like a man possessed by the ghost of this song...
It's an appropriately melancholy and desperate vocal offering that's really haunting.
Band truly rocks hard here too:

It was interesting reading back and getting caught up in that
'fake song' saga. Ive nothing to add or detract, it amused me
for 5 minutes.
Street Legal was the album i first heard, and has been my
favourite record by Dylan ever since.

Journalist: On "Lights of Home," you write, "I shouldn't be here because I should be dead. I can see the lights in front of me. I believe my best days are ahead, I can see lights in front of me. Oh, Jesus, if I'm still your friend, what the hell, what the hell you got for me?"

Bono: There is a Bob Dylan reference in that song; I'll just tell you 'cause I know you love Bob. It goes, "Hey, now, do you know my name? Where I'm going? If I can't get an answer in your eyes, I see it, the lights of home." At least in my head, the reference is to one of my favorite Dylan songs, "Señor Señor." In that song, he meets an angel and he, like, goes on this ride with him. I have always imagined it is the angel of death.

Journalist: The full name of the song is "Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)." Does that help explain?

Bono: No, I think that is Bob putting you off the trail.

As one would expect, Bono gets it completely wrong.

There is no mention of an angel of any kind in the song.

Senor is Spanish for 'Lord'.

The song's last verse speaks of over-turning tables.

There are references throughout Street-Legal of what is about to happen, such as 'a long-distance train'.

The next album was Slow Train Coming.

How stupid does Bono have to be to think that the song is some voodoo about an 'angel of death'? Oh, God, spare me from that little twerp.

Bono has always been a quick learner jerk, "un gilipollas espabilado".
