Just a Little Glass of Water

The image is a stand in for a song. It could have been a You Tube link but most likely that will become a dead link due to the video at some point being removed due to a copyright infringement filed by Columbia Records. But you can search out the song. It's a song that is most likely responsible for about 70% of what I do. The story goes that 12 hours were spent recording 19 different takes of the song. Take 1, a solo piano ‘draft’, can still be found on You Tube if you search dylan+shesyourlovernow+soloatpiano but it is take 19 that this image stands in for. It took 25 years for this full band version to be released on ‘The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3 (Rare and Unreleased) 1961-1991’. A still unfinished take that ends abruptly. A song crafted and honed, clearly considered worthy of spending time on, but ultimately left unresolved. It’s maybe something about the songs unresolvedness that I find satisfying.
