Maybe, but it’s no Hurricane
As much as I like Hurricane, I personally prefer TUIB
The other great track on BOTT is Idiot Wind
Hurricane is good but it’s way off his best for sure.
The best track on BoTT for me, though the New York version is a lot better.
Hurricane is my favourite all time Dylan song. You are rong
Straight of the top of my head
It’s All Over Now Baby Blue
Most Of The Time
Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
Masters of War
Changing of the Guard
Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright
She Belongs To Me
Are all a lot better that Hurricane. I proved that scientifically over 20 years ago
Some of the bootleg series have some great versions of the originally released songs. The Bootleg Series, Vol. 8 / Tell Tale Signs has a version of Mississippi that murders the original.
I think a lot of it is that they haven’t been fucked about with and just sound like a well recorded live performance
Because I’m a complete Dylan nerd, and have been since the late 60s, I have had most of official Bootleg Series for years as unofficial. Started on dodgy cassettes that could be bought via the classifieds in one of the fan magazines. When the web started up things got a lot easier. I have over 600 bootleg CDs in boxes in the loft. I must get to ripping them to my server. I still a limited edition Little White Wonder on vinyl
The version of Mississippi you cite is a belter. Loads of superb tracks spread across the series. Leaves me wondering why the fuck they weren’t released?
I have that too
Would love to hear some of those 600 CD’s though
