Bob Dylan outtake, "New Danville Girl"
The great American songwriter sings about an East Bay town?
Just came across this cool Bob Dylan outtake from his 1987 album, Knocked Out Loaded. The album is widely considered one of Dylan's worst, but it did contain the standout track, Brownsville Girl, an epic, sprawling song that was also included on Dylan's Greatest Hits Volume 3. Apparently, the working title of the song was "New Danville Girl." Check it out!
Dylan's hero, Woody Guthrie, wrote a classic song named "Danville Girl." Don't know when Bob decided to change from the Woody homage to Brownsville, but I'll make sure to ask him if we run into one another.
