Pancho And Lefty (Townes Van Zandt)

R-0490 Duet with Willie Nelson, from the Columbia House VHS video Willie Nelson: The Big Six-O - An All-Star Birthday Celebration, 1993, see VHS & DVD 1990s Part 1

BDC104 Live, Bonnaroo 2004 Music Festival, Manchester, TN, 11 Jun 2004, from bobdylan.com, Jun 2004, see Online Performances (bobdylan.com)

Paths Of Victory [The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3, 1991]

R-0465 Acetate of 1963 Witmark demo (different from version released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3), offered for sale by auction, Dec 1992, see 1992, now released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 - The Witmark Demos 1962-1964, 2010

R-0201 From the 1990 Flashback OST album on WTG Records (see 1990 and VHS & DVD 1990s Part 1) - a new recording for the film, not version R-0136 from the 4 Songs From Renaldo & Clara promo 12" single, for that see 1978

Percy's Song [Biograph, 1985]

Q-0001 Mono version of Biograph track, out-take from The Times They Are A-Changin’, recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 23 Oct 1963, on a UK Emidisc test pressing from the late 1960s, see Questionable Releases

R-1030 Percy's Song - take 1, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 23 Oct 1963, from the Columbia/Legacy Europe 6LP limited edition 50th Anniversary Collection 1963, Dec 2013
This "new" alternate take is listed as Take 1, 23 Oct 1963 (CO79682). However, on Biograph Percy's Song is also listed as being from 23 Oct, and Michael Krogsgaard in "Bob Dylan's Recording Sessions", understandably identifies take 1 from 23 Oct as the Biograph take. However, if this is right, it can't be! There was only one other complete take of Percy's Song, on 24 Oct 1963 (CO79682, take 3), which must actually be the version on Biograph (as identified by Clinton Heylin, it turns out correctly).

R-0795 [Again incorrectly titled as Turn Turn Turn] - live Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963 (stereo version), from second version of the cancelled Columbia album Bob Dylan In Concert (see 1964). This edit has no intro as on the first version of Bob Dylan In Concert (R-0374), but has lots of audience coughing that is not on the first edit.

R-0795M [Again incorrectly titled as Turn Turn Turn] - live Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963 (mono version), from second version of cancelled Columbia album Bob Dylan In Concert, 1964 (different edit from R-0374M)

R-1084 Live, Carnegie Hall, New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music Europe 6LP limited edition 50th Anniversary Collection 1963, Dec 2013 (same as R-0374 without spoken intro and also without audience coughing)
