NEED A NEW NAME Bob Dylan/Michel Montecrossa, 2002 O
Like JACK O' DIAMONDS, not strictly a Dylan song, but a written lyric of Bob's set to music without authorisation by Italian "Cyber-rocker" Michel Montecrossa on his Mira Sound Germany album "Fieldmouse From Nebraska" (Germany, 2002), see - thanks to David Plentus for spotting this item! See top of page for the album cover

 

NEVER ? ?
Deliberately misleading song title used on an early vinyl bootleg - I have no information as to which song it actually is

 


"Empire Burlesque # And Reality Rocker" (Mira Sound Germany, 2004) album by Michel Montecrossa on which he performs NEW DANVILLE GIRL

NEW DANVILLE GIRL Bob Dylan/Sam Shepard, 1984 S
Out-take from "Empire Burlesque", recorded Cherokee Studios, Hollywood, CA, 6-12 Dec 1984. Early version of BROWNSVILLE GIRL, subsequently released on "Knocked Out Loaded", 1986 - inspired by Cisco Houston's DANVILLE GIRL. Cover version performed by Italian "Cyber-rocker" Michel Montecrossa on his album "Empire Burlesque # And Reality Rocker" (Mira Sound Germany, 2004) - thanks to Jack Guerreiro for information

Recording session sheet title of WIGWAM, released on "Self Portrait"

 

NEW SONG 2 1969 O

NEW YORK CITY BLUES 1961 N? Y

NEXT TIME ON THE HIGHWAY 1967 H
Basement Tapes song recorded with The Band, Big Pink, West Saugerties, NY, Jul-Oct 1967
Now released on CD6 of "The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - Bob Dylan And The Band: The Basement Tapes Complete", Nov 2014

 

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DREAD/NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD Bob Dylan?, 1990 N?
According to Michael Krogsgaard, song recorded at the Complex, Los Angeles, CA, 19 Apr 1990, during the "Under The Red Sky" sessions. This may be a recording session sheet title for a published song! Heylin calls it NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and says it was originally recorded in Mar 1990, with a new vocal recorded on 19 Apr 1990

 

NIGHTINGALE’S CODE 1965  
The hoax title of the first track of a fictitious Dylan Christmas album called "Snow Over Interstate 80" in a joke article in an early 70s issue of the UK magazine "New Musical Express". It probably refers to one of the takes of FREEZE OUT, the 1965 version of "Blonde On Blonde"’s VISIONS OF JOHANNA, containing the line "He examines the nightingale’s code". For more details, see my "Snow Over Interstate 80" page.

 

NO. 11 MINE 1963 O
Title used in the US Library of Congress online entry for the 1963 Newport Folk Festival for the live performance at the morning workshop, 27 Jul 1963, of NORTH COUNTRY BLUES, released on "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan'". Thanks to Bob Stacy for information

 

NO COMPASSION    
One of the fake titles circulated on the Internet in January 1997 as part of a hoax about a new album to be called "Stormy Season" - see STORMY SEASON for more details

 

NO LIGHT WILL SHINE ON ME 1969 O
Recording session sheet title of ONE MORE NIGHT, released on "Nashville Skyline"

 

NO SHOES ON MY FEET 1967 H
Unidentified Basement Tapes song recorded with The Band, Big Pink, West Saugerties, NY, Jul-Oct 1967

 

NORTH OF V Bob Dylan/Michel Montecrossa, 2002 O
Like JACK O' DIAMONDS, not strictly a Dylan song, but a written lyric of Bob's set to music without authorisation by Italian "Cyber-rocker" Michel Montecrossa on his Mira Sound Germany album "Fieldmouse From Nebraska" (Germany, 2002), see - thanks to David Plentus for spotting this item! See top of page for the album cover

 

NOTHING HERE WORTH DYING FOR Bob Dylan?, 1985 S
Previously unknown song possibly recorded at Cherokee Studios, Hollywood, CA, May-Oct 1985.

 


Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes [Various Artists], Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records 2537950140 (USA/Europe) containing the "lost" Dylan song NOTHING TO IT completed by Jim James

NOTHING TO IT

Bob Dylan/Jim James, 1967/2014 Y
T-Bone Burnett has produced an album called "Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes", released in Nov 2014, consisting of unreleased Bob songs from lyrics unused during the Basement Tapes sessions with The Band in Woodstock, New York in 1967, completed by Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford. NOTHING TO IT has been completed by Jim James of the band My Morning Jacket

 

NOT TURNING BACK 1997 N?
Out-take from the "Time Out Of Mind" sessions, which took place at Criterion Sound Studio, Miami, FL, in January 1997, reported by Glen Dundas in the 2004 edition of his book "Tangled". T.J. Young thinks this is possibly a recording session title for MARCHIN' TO THE CITY, released in 2008 on "The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006"

 

NOWHERE TO GO Bob Dylan/George Harrison, 1968 H
Actual copyrighted title for the song performed at Woodstock, New York State, as a duet by Bob and George in November 1968 and circulating mainly under the title EVERY TIME SOMEBODY COMES TO TOWN

 

NUMBER ONE 1965 O
Untitled instrumental called "Trk No Vocal" on the tape box and "#1" on the artists' contract card, recorded with the Hawks between the "Highway 61 Revisited" and "Blonde On Blonde" sessions at Columbia Studios, New York, 5 Oct 1965 (CO87187 and CO87192) - usually misdated as 30 Nov - 01 Dec 1965. Paul Cable speculated that this track could be the legendary "lost" song CHURCH WITH NO UPSTAIRS, but Tim Dunn, author of "The Bob Dylan Copyright Files 1962-2007" (AuthorHouse, 2008), informs me that the two songs have separate copyrights, so they cannot be the same. No longer an unreleased song since it was released as UNKNOWN INSTRUMENTAL in Nov 2015 on "The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (Deluxe Edition)"

 

NYC BLUES 1961 N? Y
Lyrics in a manuscript left by Bob at the home of Eve and Mac McKenzie after staying there in Summer 1961. The page was auctioned in 2006 for almost $13,000! No recording or performance is known. Thanks to Tim Dunn for information
