I’ve been review every track of the 18 Disc masterpiece but once you get to Blonde On Blonde sessions, the rewards become less and less and you find yourself writing stuff like, “Jonstone asks them to start again”. Not exactly illuminating. Especially, on these two dates. One in October, one in November, neither of which provided anything that showed on Blonde On Blonde.

The problem with “I Wanna Be Your Lover” is it not a million times different than “Fourth Time Round”. If you had to leave any one song off Blonde On Blonde what else would it be? I don’t mind musically, by the way, I mean as a Beatles tribute.

Then he spent hours without figuring out that he needed to slow “Visions Of Johanna” to a crawl.

In retrospect, the Hawks were a touch too aggressive for the songs he tried on with them (that’s why only the very vicious “Sooner Or Later (One Of Must Know)” survived.
