I always had an appreciation for the 94-95 arrangement of this one and even like it as much (if not more)
than the much-loved 1974 version...
The song is the ultimate 'kiss-off' song...she’s just too much trouble that he’s moving on. This version has the menace that
Bob started to acquire this tone heavily throughout these years and applied to this old chestnut, becomes even more
poisonously bad-ass than ever....

My favorite has to be from that incredible show in my hometown:

Philadelphia PA
June 21 1995

And here's the song as a keeper (if so inclined:)

Yes.

I said it was a great version in this very thread in Oct 2012.

Thanks for finally getting around to agreeing!

....because you have such excellent taste Mr. Hamilton-Smith:)!!

As my special Christmas gift to you personally, may I give you this gift
of seeing Mr. Bob Dylan perform this song in July 2005 at that private
Amazon.com concert. It's a hoot:)

Another perfect track from one of Bob's most perfect albums. Done well Live on more than a few occasions, the Live version I'm most familiar with is the "Before the Flood" performances.

One of my favorite Dylan songs. The live version from Before The Flood is amazing, but the album version can't be beat. The groove Bob gets with that Nashville studio band is absolutely smoking...the combo of his smooth yet delightfully loopy vocals, Al Kooper's circus organ, that thumping bass line and the way the two electric guitars just interlock so perfectly...a gorgeous performance, one of the best on BoB. (Speaking of the studio version, I've always assumed the two guitar players on this track are Robbie on lead and Bob on rhythm, but I remember reading somewhere [perhaps Wikipedia] that Charlie McCoy played lead guitar, with Joe South on bass. Does anyone know for certain who played what on this fantastic studio version?)

I'm not acquainted with any of the NET versions of this song, but I'll definitely check them out. What do you guys think of the Mark Ronson remix? Although it doesn't stack up to any version Dylan's done of this song, I think it's pretty good; it's a modern spin on an old classic.

love both the roseland 1994, but the first is a tad better than the second night

Charlie McCoy plays trumpet and bass, both at the same time. Go to the recently updated http://www.electricdylan.net

I love the 94-96 versions without the trademark riff. Montreal 96 it is a good one too.

I am maybe reading too much into it but the line

I just can’t do what I done before

Just seems different and personal in the context. The way it is sung in BTF is almost other world like, probably one of my top 5 Dylan lines and one i find myself singing quiet a lot.

The first line is classic Dylan. "You say you love me and you're thinking of me" could fit into any ordinary pop song. And then you get, "but you know you could be wrooong!

^agreed.


Zurich 2003 is a favorite, with great harp, perfect vocals and an honorable mention to Tony Garnier.
