You'll have to check the references, I'm going on memory here . . . but I think he plays on Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid soundtrack, and in the liner notes to Biograph Dylan is quoted as saying B.L. was the inspiration for Mr. Tambourine Man, something about a giant tambourine . . .
From: Thomas C. Hofheinz (firstname.lastname@example.org) Date: 19. september 1997 17:24 Subject: Bruce Langhorne on BD's Who's Who Great site! One thing though... Where is the great Bruce Langhorne? He was Dylan's guitar sideman on *Freewheeling* ("Corrina Corrina"), *Bringing It All Back Home* (throughout), *Highway 61 Revisited* ("Desolation Row"), and *Pat Garrett and Billy the Kidd*. Dylan said at one point (the Biograph notes?) that he had Langhorne in his mind when he wrote "Mr. Tamborine Man"...he really loved Langhorne, who was a big sweet guy, and he had had a memorable music session where Langhorne was playing a big tamborine. I don't know if Langhorne is alive or dead, but his playing on "Desolation Row" is the greatest guitar performance on any Dylan record, as far as I'm concerned. Tom Hofheinz

I noticed the name Bruce Langhorne (playing tambourine and electric guitar on three of the thirteen tracks) because I thought I remembered it from Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid... A quick HotBot search threw up some other references, including an appearance with Bob Dylan on TV in 1965, see http://www.punkhart.com/dylan/tapes/65-feb17.html, and some recipes (yes, it's the same person).
