One of my Favorites

If you have the opportunity to watch the PBS documentary on Bob Dylan called "No Direction Home", don't pass it up. It's full of so many great moments and performances.

One of my favorites is Joan Baez's performance of Dylan's "Love is just a four letter word". It's a beautiful song, and I think of it as an earlier version of "Tangled Up in Blue". Full lyrics here.

And so many of Dylan's songs have such great lyrics. Case in point:

I said goodbye unnoticed
Pushed towards things in my own games
Drifting in and out of lifetimes
Unmentionable by name

So without further babbling...

However, her voice is more beautiful here - and she's got Earl Scruggs in the mix. Now that's great stuff.
