This a great version by Patti Smith and it is from her Album, '12', a Covers album....... It was first released by Dylan on the 'Street Legal' album and is one of Dylans 'second generation Greatest Hits'. Now, there must be plenty of Dylan fans out there who have a wife or partner, that, whenever they hear a Dylan song, shout! 'turn that noise off' or 'the words are good, but he can't sing'. Doesn't it just annoy you?
Take my wife for example, when we have drink or BBQ and if Dylan comes on, the party is over. However, for some reason 'only known to her' she like this song. She calls it the 'Queen of Swords song', at least I always had one Bob song to play. I later managed to 'sneak' in anything from 'Nashville Skyline' or 'Self Portrait'...she didn't recognise the voice.
Beware!!! Even Dylan fans can be devious.
