Bob Dylan ended February 16th,1966,  with a completed  “Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands”, though what his problem with Take 1 was I have no idea. A beautiful lo fi waltz, that sounds better to my ears today than it did there.

The next day he spends working out”Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again” in the most interesting moments since Highway 61 Revisited. This is the first time all session we really hear him work the song out. Track Seven has him trying to fix the bridge to the harmonica part, explaining why it is too fast and he will have to wait a whole beat to get to it which will screw up the drummer. Dylan will get the song right but we won’t hear it completed till Disc Fifteen.
