Studio version from The Times, definitely. So soft and beautiful.
I never liked the new arrangements -with the stress on "Beeehinnnnd"- performed on stage with the Band that are the template for all later versions (as far as I know, but I know little). Are there later live versions without these arrangements?

Really a great song.

Basement Tapes-version
October 1th, 2000, Münster

I love these two versions.

It's like You're a big girl now - the song that never stops giving.


I've been enjoying the slightly clumsy sounding Isle of Wight version.

One version I could never handle is the Dylan/Cash session. It's impressive that they went to the trouble to work out the key changes, but unfortunately it just doesn't sound good.

Hard Rain!


My first thought was Hard Rain, it's such a powerful performance. There are several others that I consider amazing but none hits me like that one.

The Hard Rain version is some of Bob Dylan's best moments. It's over the top. Similar to the Hard Rain version of I threw it all away. Those versions are so far above all others, it's like they are different songs. I should know. Look at my avatar. That's the face of a man watching the Hard Rain performance. (I'm not really him)

Nice!!! I agree, many of those performances are very different songs. "Oh, Sister" is another one from that album that I consider the best version. Now I want to hear it again, it's been a while.. Going to listen tonight.

I, too, immediately thought of Hard Rain, but then I was reminded of that Berkeley 95 performance (see http://www.expectingrain.com/discussions/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=48261&hilit=you+gotta for beautiful details).
I think it depends on what you want the song to do for you. Are you a thousand miles behind because you're pushing yourself to the limit and just need to make it one more mile? Hard Rain is the ticket. Are you one too many mornings behind because life has made you weary, and you just need to let the night air fall on you? Berkeley 95 will take you there. It's amazing what one great song can do, and Bob has written hundreds.
