Highlights of Bob Dylan’s ‘Bootleg Series’
Here are several gems from Dylan's prolific body of work.
6. “Most of the Time” (Volume 8)
Jumping ahead almost a quarter of a century, Dylan has been through an incredible amount. A divorce with emotional repercussions resulted in two of his greatest albums, a wholehearted conversion to Christianity, and a sort of “lost decade” where Dylan seemingly lost his way. Working with Daniel Lanois in 1989, Dylan hoped to resurrect his stalling career with Oh Mercy. “Most Of the Time,” in its studio version was drenched in reverb and a feeling of distance and sentimentality. But this incarnation of it is extraordinary. Sung by Dylan alone with an acoustic and harmonica, he turns the song into a beautiful, spare, rolling ballad; one that packs far more punch than the version that ended up on Oh Mercy.
