1991 – From Album “Bob Dylan – the Bootleg Series Volumes 1 – 3 (rare and unreleased) 1962 – 1991
The Bootleg series has been a staple every few years for Bob Dylan as of late since the first release in 1991. The series has now had ten installments, spanning from his roots up until the very recent unreleased and live recordings. The first 3 combined installments spanned throughout about 30 years and ranged from alternate versions, to live recordings and unreleased demos. “Talkin’ Hava Negeilah Blues” is the latter.
Now although Dylan is known for writing some long and epic songs that stretch across several minutes to about sixteen or so, this bootlegged song from the early 1960’s stands at a very brief 52 seconds. The lyrics are simple, the melody is simple and it is not one of Dylan’s finest works. But for those who haven’t heard it, I can easily fit the lyrics in this little blurb.
