Yet another great Bob Dylan's song ruined by his deplorable harmonica "playing". Take out those part and this song is beautiful.
 Well  I'm trying to come up with a number for how many singers have used a 'mouth harp' aka 'french harp' in a harness just to keep their two hands free to play on the guitar.  And sing a song too!  

 
That's no excuse for horrible playing, better not do it at all then. This is a professional musician we're talking about. Neil Young does it hands free as well, and it sounds a million times better than this cacophony.

I love Bryan Ferry's cover of this. So many of BD's songs covered by others, usually better IMO.
Well, I did not know this was a Dylan song. How about that?

George Harrison & Bob Dylan If Not For You, Live

The Concert for Bangladesh Rehearsal.

"Bob Dylan has at some time in his life embodied the personalities of each of the beatles : the ruthless rockstar - John - in Don't Look Back , the otherworldly contemplative thinker - George - in his born-again christian phase, the romantic familyman - Paul - with Sara Dylan and the kids, and the Ringo in the silly clothing fashion and musical imperfectness of his 21st century live performances."      MetrazolElectricity
