That was a great intro to "Up Against the Wall..." The best line was "Maybe he played it and I didn't recognize it."
Dylan has played some pretty way-out versions of his standards striving to stay relevant. Well, he doesn't need to strive, he just is and always be. Him and Neil Young are two who escaped their heydays with integrity and continue to produce.
I saw Dylan once in '89. He started with "Union Sundown" and didn't stop for about five songs. Never said a word. Finally, at some point in the show he paused between songs and said, "Ese uh, hoola monj a bagaga wayo. HAHAHAHAHAHAH"
Glad he thought it was funny, whatever it was
