I like this cover of Bob Dylan’s “Paths of Victory” from a Cat Power performance at Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA in 1999.
Dylan recorded the song in November 1962 at the Broadside offices in New York and it appeared on The Whitmark Demos: 1962 – 1964 Bootleg Series album.
He also recorded it on August 12, 1963 for The Times They Are A-Changin’, but of course didn’t include it on that album. That version made it onto the very first Bootleg Series set.
Here’s the version of “Paths Of Victory” Dylan cut for The Times They Are A-Changin’:
