Track of the Week: Tonight I'll be Staying Here With You by Bob Dylan & The Rolling Thunder Revue

I'm a huge fan of the Bob Dylan Bootleg series, although I can never afford them. Recently I got a hold of Live 1975 The Rolling Thunder Revue (bootleg Series Vol. 5). After a lackluster tour with the band, Dylan decided to try something different. So he assembled a huge cast of musicians and friends, and went on a cross country tour as the Rolling Thunder Revue.

The energy and musicianship really stand out on this tour document. Dylan is frequently reworking songs, some are unrecognizable. Check out this exciting version of "Tonight I'll be Staying Here With You".

Here's one more. The band reworks his classic "Just Like a Women", with the obvious influence of Bowie guitarist Mick Ronson.
