Dylan songs of the 21st century. Dylan’s lighter side. It is interesting playing the Freewheelin version of I shall be free and then the outtake version. Same key, sometimes the same lyrics, but somehow the Freewheelin version feels so much more accomplished. I guess Bob was still fresh when he made that recording; by the time he got to the later versions I suppose he was just too familiar with what he was doing. At least that’s how it seems to me. As for the lyrics printed on the official site – they don’t quite match what we hear – apparently Dylan re-wrote them later.
The songs trickled out over the years – on the 1975 double album The Basement Tapes and on bootlegs that fans have obsessed about endlessly. But on November 4th, Dylan will finally release the legendary sessions in their entirety: 138 tracks on six CDs, including 30 tracks that even fanatical Dylan fans never knew existed. At the end of the sessions, Dylan’s camp sent a 14-track tape to various bands and publishing houses: Manfred Mann turned Quinn the Eskimo into a Top 10 hit, the Byrds tackled You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere and Peter, Paul and Mary covered Too Much of Nothing. But people longed to hear Dylan’s versions. I Shall be Released (Take 2) 21. This Wheel’s on Fire (written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko) 22. Too Much of Nothing (Take 1) 23.

With only a pair of exceptions (think Hendrix and the Byrds), Bob Dylan's compositions are associated most with and recorded or performed best by Dylan himself. Tribute albums or collections of covers can never possess the grit and fire of his best material, especially those songs either intensely personal ("Positively 4th Street," "My Back Pages") or polemical ("Masters of War," "Talking World War III Blues"). The Box Tops' 1969 version of "I Shall Be Released" is a splendid fusion of country and soul, though Harry Nilsson's contribution is a ragged "Subterranean Homesick Blues" from 1974.
I Shall Be Released was written by Bob Dylan in 1967, though the first officially-released track was recorded by The Band for their debut album, The Big Pink in 1968. The song was performed at The Band’s farewell concert in 1976 with Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Ringo Starr, among others. Dylan recorded two different versions of the song. The first version was made in collaboration with the Band and was eventually released on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3. The second version was released in 1971 on Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol. II. The lyrics here are taken from the latter
Where Dylan’s first Greatest Hits took its title literally, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is a greatest-hits album only in the loosest sense of the term. While the double album does contain several genuine hits - Lay Lady Lay, Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here with You, the non-LP Watching the River Flow - it is largely comprised of album tracks that became classics, either through Dylan’s own version or through covers. There are also various rarities scattered throughout the 21 songs, including a live version of Tomorrow Is a Long Time from 1963, a live take of The Mighty Quinn (Quinn the Eskimo), and the Basement Tapes songs I Shall Be Released, Down in the Flood, and You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere. I Shall be Released – 03:06 11. You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere – 02:48 12. Down in the Flood – 02:52.
Dylan himself released a 1967 version, produced by Leon Russell, on his 1971 sampler Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol. II aka More Bob Dylan Greatest Hits as well as Basement Tapes (recorded with the Band). Sid Griffin is a great American musician, singer-songwriter (former member of the Long Ryders, Western Electric and the Unclaimed), journalist and Dylan-author. The Coal Porters are the world’s first alternative Bluegrass band. Fun Fact: Simone Felice played drums on the album (I and love and you), no, not all the songs, but it shows his musicality. He’s a very good drummer, great songwriter and guitarplayer, and, my God, what a voice! Talking abou. imone Felice and Simi Stone – I Shall Be Released: Great version, I’ve seen them in different settings over the years. Simi Stone was also a member of The Duke and The King, great band both on record and live, hope they’re just on a break.
