Twelve Gates to the City / AmericanaramA

Bob Dylan sounds to be in fine fettle for the AmericanaramA Festival of Music:

Earlier versions of "Twelve Gates to the City":

and a Dave van Ronk version which slips into "In My Time of Dying":

and a Joan Baez version:

If it were coming closer to Bellingham, I'd be tempted to buy a ticket. It's been a long time since I've been to a Bob Dylan concert.

Wow! I have never heard this song. And, what a surprise to find so many musicians have recorded it. We just listened to Dave Van Ronk's recording. It's like an old-time gospel.

Hey, did you catch the story the other day of Bob Dylan being arrested in Long Branch, NJ because he was wandering around and the neighbors thought he looked like a "scruffy old man." The rookie cop didn't know who he was. But the other police officers had a good laugh at such a gaffe.

Solitary Walker -- Somehow I deleted your comment. Not sure how that happened. My response to your comment is still here, but your comment has disappeared.

robin andrea -- In some ways it must be a relief to Bob Dylan that he can be anonymous (-:
