Slash played acoustic guitar on the original version of the song, which appeared on Dylan’s 1990 release, “Under The Red Sky.”

Due March 25, “Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One” features covers by Built To Spill, Glen Hansard, Reggie Watts, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Lucius, Langhorne Slim, Craig Finn Of The Hold Steady, Deer Tick, Dawn Landes, Blitzen Trapper, Carl Broemel Of My Morning Jacket, Elvis Perkins and more.
