I first saw Dylan perform 'Boots' in Lyons in 1994. Until then, I hadn't fully appreciated the glorious pain & beauty of the song. Now, I could listen to it all day long and always find something new in it - but isn't that often the way with Bob's best work?

These are two lovely versions.

The S - yes it a superb song and took on a little more significance when I moved to Spain...some say Dylan can'ot sing well if they would just listen to this maybe they would change their mind
