Bob Dylan: Idiot Wind
I’ve often thought of trying to find a Dylan song for each theme – and honestly, i think can be done. My Ryan Adams collection could work, too… but I digress. We’ve made it through pages and pages of themes – even a Dylan week – without this gem from the seminal Blood On The Tracks. Who else could make idiot an adjective?
After the initial pressing of the album, Dylan decided he wanted to make a few changes and re-recordeded a number of tracks. He added a full band to otherwise acoustic songs, including Idiot Wind. Here's a bonus acoustic cut from Bootleg Vol. II - complete with altered verses and extra spite.
