Can anyone confirm that this is not a fake recording? I doubt it... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjQZKMNFfpg

if it's fake it's pretty good, I guess.

I can't find no information on any connection between Dylan and Seger, but who knows, maybe....

All I know is that Dylan played Hollis Brown in 1996 with JJ Jackson on banjo: https://youtu.be/mBwfc1s5z6o

thanks for your response...but, that was not my question...does this voice really sound like Dylan's? I remember a couple of years ago there were some fake recordings circulating on youtube...maybe this is another one.

Isn't this the Mike Seeger version with Bob Dylan on vocals?

It appears on the album Third Annual Farewell Reunion (1994).

100% genuine. A tribute album to Mike Seeger, who plays the banjo here. An excellent version it is, too.

There is an irritating moment in the beginning, which makes the piece even more great. Thanks for it.

Yeah, I have that album. It is worth checking out. Mike Seeger does a song
with Ralph Stanley (East Virginia Blues). Another one with Hazel Dickens (They're at Rest Together).
Lots of good stuff on there. It is an album of Mike Seeger singing and playing with his friends and peers.

It's genuine, taken from the Mike Seeger album mentioned above. This version also was included in one of the "Hard To Find" compilations (The first or the second, I think).

55 years later and it's not got old for me yet. Classic early Dylan. One of his bleakest songs. I love it.

It sounded like Dylan. If not, maybe he's better. :)

The original version is the only one that ever moved me. Every other performance I've heard sounds rushed and robotic. That first version has a vibe that can't be recreated. I'm in shock at the end thinking of this dead family.

The most haunting thing is that, during the Great Depression, there really were people who committed suicide because of the unemployment, hunger, and, in a lesser degree, the fall of the stock market.

I can confirm that this is a real recording.

I can also confirm that it is an awesome version of the song.
