Bob Dylan’s best songs: Abandoned Love




Bob Dylan & Sara Dylan

‘Abandoned Love’ marks the very point at which Dylan decided to (temporarily) abandon love, and particularly forsaken love, as the prime subject-matter for his songs.
~Clinton Heylin (Still On The Road)

A lovely song recorded for (but left out of) Desire in NYC, July 31, 1975. It was later released on Biograph in 1985.

The only live version of the song is even better.

Studio version:

Studio E

31 July 1975
5th Desire session, produced by Don DeVito.

We have dug up two fine documentaries about The Everly Brothers and their influence in music history, both are fantastic and a fitting celebration on this sad day.

lives of the famous Everly Brothers. This singing duo made
of brothers Don and Phil is considered one of the most
relevant artists of the country and rock-and-roll genre.
