And now the end of the sessions, disc # 18 are all demos in hotel rooms, and so this is the end. Three songs, all find, plus as added plus you get to hear Dylan drop the “f” bomb for the first time anywhere!! What else? “Obviously Five Believers” was initially called “Black Dog Blues” (for obvious believers reasons, right?). Take One of “I Want You” is fascinating and wrong in just the slightest of degrees. He didn’t have the whine in the vocal yet. And that, my friends, is a wrap. In just about half an hour.
