The Best Dylan Covers: Lou Reed – Foot of Pride

“That’s the song I picked to do at Bobfest (in New York in 1992). I’d been listening to it almost every day for two months. It’s so fucking funny: ‘Did he make it to the top? Well, he probably did and dropped.’ There are so many verses, it was impossible to learn. G.E. Smith, who was playing with me, turned the pages. There is a lot of anger here. It’s not the Three Stooges.”
– Lou Reed

Foot of Pride is an outtake from the Infidels sessions. As with most Dylan albums, outtakes and rough mixes from Infidels were bootlegged and these sessions had some very interesting gems. A take of Foot of Pride with Bob Dylan was later released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3.

  • Songs from live albums not allowed (that’s another & more complicated list)

    Saw you stretched out in Room Ten O Nine
    With a smile on your face and a tear right in your eye.
    Oh, couldn’t see to get a line on you, my sweet honey love.Berber jew’lry jangling down the street,
    Make you shut your eyes at ev’ry woman that you meet.
    Could not seem to get a high on you, my sweet honey love.May the good Lord shine a light on you,
    Make every song (you sing) your favorite tune.
    May the good Lord shine a light on you,
    Warm like the evening sun.
