[blockquote cite=”Mr. WordPress” type=”left, center, right”]He’s [Willie Nelson] like a philosopher, you know. He gets to the heart of it in a quick way, gets it out and it’s over. And this leaves the listener to think about it.

  1. “Trust Yourself” is amazing, a minor Bob Dylan song that absolutely rocks in the live version posted here. A perfect illustration of Bob Dylan’s capacity to invest his energy in his most obscure compositions is on display here.

    1. Thanks Carl,

      I agree .. “Trust Yourself” rocks! .. way better than the album version (but that goes without saying really…)
