Audio: Cat Power Covers Bob Dylan’s ‘Paths Of Victory’ – Live, 1999 + Dylan’s Version + More

Cat Power

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’:

Check out the lyrics here.

Photo of Dylan from 1996 via Wikipedia.

So I happened onto this video of Dylan performing “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” in Ferrara, Italy in 1996 and his singing was quite good and the feel of the performance was great. So I started wondering what else there might be from 1996 and I found some very cool videos.

Check these out.
