Bob Dylan performing “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)” @ Newcastle, UK – April 12, 2007 (video)





Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying

Tomorrow night
Will you remember what you said tonight?
Tomorrow night
Will all thrills be gone?
Tomorrow night
Will it be just another memory,
Or just another lovely song
That’s in my full heart to linger on?

Tomorrow Night” is a 1939 song written by Sam Coslow and Will Grosz. The same year Horace Heidt peaked at number sixteen with his version of the song.In 1948, Lonnie Johnson had a crossover hit on King Records (Johnson had also previously recorded the song for Paradise records in 1947) with the song, which had Johnson on guitar and Simeon Hatch on piano. Lonnie Johnson’s version hit number one on the R&B charts for seven non consecutive weeks and peaked at number nineteen on the pop chart.Lonnie Johnson’s version of “Tomorrow Night” would become his theme song and transformed the song into a blues standard. Lavern Baker had another hit on it in 1956. The song was recorded by Elvis Presley during his tenure at Sun records.  Bob Dylan recorded the song on his 1992 album Good As I Been To You.

March 16: Bob Dylan making Most Of The Time promo video – 1990





bob dylan most of the time

Most of the time
I’m clear focused all around
Most of the time
I can keep both feet on the ground
I can follow the path, I can read the signs
Stay right with it when the road unwinds
I can handle whatever I stumble upon
I don’t even notice she’s gone
Most of the time

.. Sony wanted him to record a promo video of the song to help their ongoing attempts to promote an album that had been (correctly) received as a real return to form. And Dylan, being Dylan, duly obliged by re-recording the song with the musicians destined to feature on his next album, under the red sky, and letting his son Jesse film the results. The resultant thudding threnody was as unambient as it gets. Yet Dylan dug it enough to allow promo CDs of this new version to be released, even though after a month off the road his voice was not in great shape, and the song suffers accordingly

February 24: Bob Dylan performing “Desolation Row” in Wellington, New Zealand 2003 (video)

They’re selling postcards of the hanging
They’re painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They’ve got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they’re restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row

I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
No, I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
Well, I wake in the morning
Fold my hands and pray for rain
I got a head full of ideas
That are drivin’ me insane
It’s a shame the way she makes me scrub the floor
I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more
