When listening to *Making A Liar Out Of Me* in my earphones, I always turn to see if there's someone calling me from behind.

At 01'05" (right after *..of me*)
02'25" (right after ...*empire*)
03'49" (right after...*trust us*)
there's a voice (voice?) saying something unintelligible, which sounds a bit like *Prof!* which inevitably makes me remove one earplug and turn around.
:lol:

What is it?
Who is it?
What does he/she say?

Sounds like an affirmative "yeah" (or "aw yeah") to me. No idea who tho.

Yeah, they're definitely there. Given that it's a rehearsal, I'm surprised we don't hear more!

Yes; actually it sounds almost *finished* rather than the opposite, as a rehersal session should be supposed to be.

Only at the very end it's clear they hadn't thought about how to close it; so Dylan slows down the words to let them know it's the last riff; the others just follow.
But the rest of the song goes on as everybody knew exactly what to do and where to go.

I agree with you there. This seems a near-finished take to me, also. The lyrics seem very deliberate and complete and the performances all round, but particularly Dylan's vocal, very assured.

I haven't noticed the background voices mentioned, but I can certainly appreciate people would have been enthusiastic about this major song.

The “voices” give it a casual feel, which is wonderful.
The song is being test driven and incubated.
The musicians can feel a good one coming on and can’t help themselves.
Great take!

Not sure if we’ll ever know who it is or what they are saying.
Roll with it.

You can also here those approving voices during the sublime instrumental verse at the end of the rehearsal version of "Every Grain Of Sand" (recorded on the same day).

Throw in a good pair of socks and you’re on.
And I’ll buy you a brew of your choice at the Pub we meet in.

Great suggestion, but a pub would be too noisy for a man with a hearing aid.

Given this song is from Dylan's era of Christian conversion I'm going with the "Yeah"... I think the source is likely from heaven.
