Song of the Day #3,081: ‘Sally Gal [Outtake]’ – Bob Dylan

no_direction_homeYou know the whole Bob Dylan bootleg thing has gotten out of control when I’m looking for a YouTube clip of today’s Random SOTD and I dig up at least four outtake versions, none of which appear to be the one I need.

Last year Dylan released an 18 CD set of every song recorded during the 1965-66 studio sessions that resulted in Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde.

Now, to be sure, those are three of the greatest albums ever recorded and I’m sure plenty of gems will be unearthed in the tapes from those historic sessions. But 18 discs? How many false starts and nearly identical takes can you hear without going crazy?

Well, I’m gonna get you Sally girl
I’m gonna get you Sally girl
I’m gonna get you Sally girl
I’m gonna get you Sally gal

I’m just one o’ them ramblin’ men
Ramblin’ since I don’t know when
Here I come and I’m a-gone again
Sally says I got no end

I’m gonna get you Sally girl
I’m gonna get you Sally girl
I’m gonna get you Sally girl
I’m gonna get you Sally gal
