LA LA LA Ray Price/Leonard McRight, 1989 L
This is probably HEY LA LA, a cover performed in May-July 1989

 

LAS VEGAS BLUES 1970 S
Spontaneous song recorded with George Harrison during the "New Morning" sessions at Columbia Studios, New York, 01 Jun 1970 (no CO no.), also known as WONDER WHEN MY SWAMP’S GONNA CATCH ON FIRE and TELEPHONE WIRE - frequently misidentified as an out-take from "Self Portrait" recorded Columbia Studios, Nashville, May 1969

 

LAUGHING WHEN YOU WANT TO CRY Bob Dylan/Gene Simmons, 1991 D
Song co-written with Gene Simmons of Kiss, who said when interviewed in 1996: "Bob Dylan and I wrote a tune together, which has yet to come out, which we have yet to completely finish, although it's been demoed already. I wrote a lyric for it called LAUGHING WHEN YOU WANT TO CRY.

But certainly when I sat in the same room with him in my guest house, 'cause he came to my house to write this tune, you're aware of people that have been here before you, who have made their mark while I was still in diapers. This is the king of lyrics. For me to sit in the same room and be treated as an equal is the highest honor. Then to find out one of the girls in his band, Scarlet Rivera, who I used to see for awhile, she knew nothing about the band when we first started out. I told her we wear makeup and she went back and told Bob and for a while he started wearing whiteface. KISS! Been there, done it, bought the T-shirt.
"

Other sources date this collaboration as being from just before the time Kiss released their "Revenge" album in 1992. There's no other information about who actually recorded the demo mentioned.

Thanks to Gil Walker for the information - for a song co-written by Bob and Gene Simmons around 1996 see WAITING FOR THE MORNING LIGHT

Lyrics of LISTEN, ROBERT MOSES published by "The Gothamist", 26 Jun 2015
 

"Jane Jacobs" by Phil Stanziola - New York World-Telegram and the Sun Newspaper Photograph Collection, Library of Congress


Proposed Lower Manhattan Expressway map from Wikipedia


Tuli Kupferberg of The Fugs
LISTEN, ROBERT MOSES 1961 N?
Thanks to "Isis" 181 for information that a Harvard Graduate School of Design essay published in 2010 stated that Bob wrote this song for activist Jane Jacobs in the early 1960s to support her campaign to get Robert Moses, designer of the planned Lower Manhattan Expressway (LOMEX), to drop the project, which would have levelled fourteen city blocks in Little Italy and displaced almost 2,000 families and 800 businesses. A plan to build the roadway, originally conceived in 1941, was set in motion in 1961, and again in 1965 and 1968, but has so far been blocked successfully. The lyrics are said to be in the Tuli Kupferberg collection of the Fales Library of New York University, and were published by the New York web-site "The Gothamist" on 26 Jun 2015. Thanks to Ben Ross for information that John Cohen of The New Lost City Ramblers says that this was probably sung to the tune of LISTEN MISTER BILBO, the song written in 1946 by Bob and Adrienne Claiborne satirising Mississippi Democrat US Senator Theodore Gilmore Bilbo (1877-1947), an man of outspoken racist views. The song has been recorded by Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary, etc. John Cohen says: Although I never heard of this song before, it seems totally possible that Bob wrote it .He was living in the middle of the Village back then.. and responding to what was around him... And his girlfriend Suze Rotolo was an activist, and eventually a great advocate of the Village. The first line is the clue to the form, structure and possible melody of the song. Look in the "Peoples Songbook" for the song LISTEN MISTER BILBO. The opening line goes "Listen Mister Bilbo, Listen to me, I'll give you a lesson in history, listen while I tell you that the foreigners you hate, are the very same people made America great." The story of Jane Jacob's fight against LOMEX is told in a 2010 book by Roberta Brandes Gratz: "The Battle for Gotham: New York in the Shadow of Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs" (Nation Books, USA)

LONG DISTANCE OPERATOR 1965 L
Performed live by Bob and The Hawks (later The Band) in late 1965. There is only one confirmed performance, at Berkeley, CA, on 04 Dec 1965, but it may have been played at other shows in this tour, notably Chicago, IL, 26 Nov 1965 (perhaps its live debut). Thanks to Bob Stacy who writes: "In the "Chicago Tribune", 27 Nov 65 (the day following the show at Aire Crown Theater, 26 Nov 65), the reviewer Bruce Plowman noted, "Dylan introduced a new song last night, one which he wrote, called 'Long Distance Operator'."  Also, someone who attended the show at San José, CA, 12 Dec 1965, remembers hearing the song. No studio version is known. The song is on the Columbia "Basement Tapes" album, but in a cover version by The Band. The lyrics are still on bobdylan.com here. Thanks to Tim Dunn for the information that the song first appeared on the album by the James Cotton Blues Band "Taking Care Of Business" (Capitol SM-814, USA, 1970) and to David Plentus for telling me that it can also be found on the 2CD compilation "Chicago Blues Masters Vol. 3" (Capitol 36288, USA, 1997). Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for pointing out that the version of Long Distance Operator (4:32) on the 2005 boxed set "The Band - A Musical History" (Capitol 72435-77409-6, USA, 2005) is listed as previously unreleased and recorded at Goldstar Studios, Los Angeles, CA, 21 Feb 1968. The so-called Basement Tapes version is 3:40, but the new performance is in fact the same recording with an edited verse restored. (It is actually well known that not all the tracks by The Band included on The Basement Tapes album were versions that were actually recorded there!) The live performance from Berkeley is now officially released on the 208 track download set 50th Anniversary Collection 1965, Columbia/Legacy (USA), 4 Dec 2015 (R-1645, see 2015)
