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
Columbia Recording Studios
New York City, New York
31 July 1975
5th Desire session, produced by Don DeVito.

– Dylan, to Jonathan Cott, September 1978
