since I am thinking we are going to get a new set list for this next leg of the tour.....

It sure would be nice if this song got added to the set list!!!!! :D

Yeah, yeah, I know (even better than many) that the Bobster does not take request, but that sure don't keep us from askin' :wink:


Funny you should mention requests when talking about this song:

The only performance of it in 1978 (25th Feb in Osaka) was in response to a mighty cry of "Play One Too Many Mornings!"

Hard Rain, followed closely by the studio version and Live 66.

Hard Rain, and it's not close. I prefer voice of experience to voice of innocence on this one. Plus I think there's an extra lyric.

Is there another song in Bob's repertoire that has been so uniformly magnificent in every era, and across electric and acoustic formats?
I can't think of a bad version!

My favourite is probably Hard Rain, but it is always wonderful!

I totally agree with that. And I also think that the hard Rain version is the best.
Have these few extra lines that have been added to the song in 76 ever been performed again on later versions?

Munster 2000 for me.

Probably followed by the Hard Rain version.

With Richard Manuel singing the first verse (and blowing a couple words) on the Basement Tapes. This version just kills me. BT also has my favorite version of It Ain't Me Babe. I think of it as the soul version.

Munster is solid. Early 2000 has a bunch of golden mornings. A sleeper pick may be the RFK 95. Love the vocal and bucky in prime

Basement Tapes--there is just nothing like Richard Manuel before Robbie turned the Band into his personal production machine. I

That is a fine one, though my pick remains Hard Rain.

The Hard Rain version is the one that got stuck in my head when I read this question so I suppose that means that should be my answer.

Definitely Hard Rain. It's amazing that the same song is a highlight of arguably Bob's best two live periods: '66 and RTR. It's one of the defining song for both in my opinion.

I'd take live 00 over 66 just about any day of the week...
