Audio: Two Lost Bob Dylan Songs – May 18-19, 1966 + Live at the ABC Theater, Edinburgh, Scotland

Dylan working on a song at the North British Hotel.

Forty-eight years ago, Bob Dylan arrived in Glasgow, Scotland on May 18, 1966f. He was booked to play a show the next night, on May 19, at the Odeon Theater in Glasgow.

On either May 18 or 19, in his hotel room at what was then called the North British Hotel, he worked on songs with Robbie Robertson.

Robbie Robertson and Dylan work on a song that was apparently never completed.

Below is some footage from “Eat the Document” plus extended audio of two of the songs.

I can’t find anything online from the Odeon show, put on May 20 Dylan and band performed at the ABC Theater in Edinburgh and I’ve got three songs from that show.

Good stuff.
