Robbie Robertson talks about recommending Otis Redding to cover Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman”, but it never came to be. Well, they did record it but he couldn’t sing the bridge (according to Mr. Robertson)…very interesting stuff!
On the commentary track included on the Criterion edition of the Monterey Pop film , D.A. Pennebaker said that he first saw Redding when Dylan took him to see Redding at the Whiskey on April 7th 1966.
