HERO BLUES 1962 O
This exists as a home recording, as a Witmark demo, and in two different studio versions: the first is an out-take from "The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan", recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 06 Dec 1962 (CO77020); the second is an out-take from "The Times They Are A-Changin'", recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 12 Aug 1963 (CO78980). The "Times" out-take was included on early acetate copies of the album, see "Searching For A Gem", 1964. This song was performed live at New York Town Hall, 12 Apr 1963 (when it was recorded by Columbia and put on to an acetate), but not released or performed again until January 1974, when Bob performed a version with revised lyrics twice with The Band. The original lyrics are on bobdylan.com here. Released as a cover by Michel Montecrossa on his 6CD Mira Sound Germany set "Bob Dylan Fest 2001", see D page for details. A live performance of this song (misidentified, but probably the live 12 Apr 1963 performance) was made available for download by on the Apple Computer music store in Apr 2003, see The "Times" out-take with fake applause was included as a "live" track on a recently discovered acetate of a version of the eventually unreleased album "Bob Dylan In Concert", see "Searching For A Gem", 2004.

HOLY LAND    
Actually not a song title, but a rumoured album title mentioned by Paul Cable in his book "Bob Dylan - His Unreleased Recordings" - like SNOW OVER INTERSTATE 80 (also see my Snow Over Interstate 80 page) and STORMY SEASON, it's a hoax. Thanks to Michael Fischer for information that this story appeared in the Australian "counter culture" magazine "Digger" around 1973 - the reviewer claimed to have been to a preview of the album at which Bob was present

Jude Johnstone's album Coming Of Age (BoJak Records 8014, US, 2002) sadly doesn't contain this song
 

Back In Your Arms (About Records, US, 2008) with Tim Hockenberry's version of HOWLIN' AT YOUR WINDOW
HOWLIN' AT YOUR WINDOW Bob Dylan/Jude Johnstone, 1993 N
Co-written in Austin, TX, Apr 1993, with singer-songwriter Jude Johnstone (who wrote Grammy Award-winning UNCHAINED for Johnny Cash, WOMAN BEFORE ME for Trisha Yearwood, CRY WOLF for Stevie Nicks, etc.). Thanks to Bob Burton from BoJak Records (Jude's manager) for confirming that she indeed wrote the lyrics for this song, while Bob wrote the music. It currently exists only in a version she's recorded as a "pitch demo". Her 2002 album "Coming Of Age" shown doesn't contain HOWLIN' AT YOUR WINDOW, nor do her five subsequent Bojak albums: "On A Good Day" (2005), "Blue Light" (2007) "Mr. Sun" (2008), "Quiet Girl" (2011) and "Shatter" (2013). Tim Dunn informs me that the song was copyrighted on 20 Dec 2005 by Sajak Music, Mad Jack Music and Bob Dylan. In 2009 it still hadn't been released by Jude (although I understand from Derek Barker that her demo is in circulation amongst collectors). However, Dirk Krah informs me that Tim Hockenberry (who has also recorded an album called "Mostly Dylan" with Tom Corwin) has recorded it on his 2008 About Records album "Back In Your Arms"

 

HUNG OVER, HUNG DOWN, HUNG OUT 1962 O
Alternate title given to MIXED UP CONFUSION, released as a single in December 1962 and on CD on the Australian compilation "Masterpieces" and "Biograph"
