'Tangled Up In Blue,' 1984 European tour
Bob Dylan's 1984 European tour with Joan Baez and Carlos Santana was a complete mess, making this complete re-write of "Tangled Up In Blue" all the more astonishing. Dylan's been reworking his songs for fifty years, but rarely do the lyrics get totally altered. Even tiny things — like changing "I'm still on the road headed for another joint" into "Me I'm headed for the sun, trying to stay out of the joint" — bring new meaning to the work.
