Video of the day: Shelter From The Storm (Live 76) – Bob Dylan

This is the ultimate version of Dylans “Shelter from the Storm”.
A well respected Norwegian writer – Tom Skjæklesæter – points out that this is “the first.. and last grunge song”:

Michael Gray (from “Song & Dance Man III”):

..Dylan is trying a balancing act.. Trying to fuse God & Woman..

In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
I bargained for salvation an’ they gave me a lethal dose.
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn.
“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her
were born. “Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter
from the storm.”

  1. My favorite version as well. Ragged glory! And that guitar Bob’s playing is like some Sci-Fi blaster. The whole gig is Dylan’s most powerful live album. One thing: Sole’s schmata – doesn’t work.

  2. fantastic version!! Dylans voice was at its peak in 1976 not sure it was ever that good again. comparing his vocal performance here with the 1992 video of Like A Rolling Stone sadly shows how his voice declined over the years.
