Ridin' Highway 61 and listenin' to Dylan

I drove up HIGHWAY 61 to cover an event yesterday, so I thought it was appropriate to hear some BOB DYLAN.
I listened to "THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 9 -- THE WITMARK DEMOS: 1962-64."
The album features 47 tracks of solo Dylan performing publishing company demo versions of songs, 15 of which were never officially released.
We hear raw and new versions of "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall," "Blowin' in the Wind" and "Masters of War" while also hearing "Bound to Lose, Bound to Win," "Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues," "Seven Curses" and other more obscure items from the vast catalog.
It was great music, particularly while steering along a road made iconic in Dylan's music.
