'The Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar' (1981)
Dylan's quality control hit an all-time low in the early Eighties. Over and over again, he'd record a great song, then cut it off the album in favor of far inferior work. The trend began in 1981 with "The Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar." He somehow felt that "Lenny Bruce" and "Dead Man, Dead Man" deserved a slot on Shot of Love more than this one. Four years later, he realized his error and – in an unprecedented move – added it to all subsequent releases of the album.
