10 Dylan Songs You’ve Never Heard – All The Way Through

Despite having recorded over 600 pieces in his career, when it comes to Dylan there’s not a lot of undiscovered territory. Songs basically come in two forms – well know or completely legendary. Still, even for the most devoted Dylan listener a few things can fall through the cracks after 40+ albums, numerous bootlegs, alt versions, and unreleased tracks. We asked our on-air team to put together a playlist of their favorite under-loved, under appreciated, or (relatively) under the radar songs from the man himself. Scroll down to read our DJs’ thoughts and hear the full playlist, and tune in all week as WNRN celebrates Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday all week with special versions of Decade of Difference, Take 2 @ 2, Live at 5, and more!

Phish Phriday 5/14

This week Andy sent in a tour request. Once upon a time, Phish set sail for a magical tour dubbed The Island Tour. Per Andy’s suggestion, we will join Phish in the vacation locale of Rhode Island for a bold cover from their ’98 performance in Providence. Catch Phish Phriday every weekday at 4pm, brought to you by Surfside Sustainable Seafood.

Providence Civic Center 4/5/98

SET 1: The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > You Enjoy Myself, Theme From the Bottom > McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters > Bathtub Gin -> Cities > Sparkle > Split Open and Melt SET 2: Down with Disease[1], Ya Mar -> Prince Caspian > Maze[1] -> Shafty[2] -> Possum[1] -> Jam -> Cavern[3] ENCORE: Bold As Love

[1] Unfinished.[2] Debut.[3] Slow, funky version with original lyrics.

This show included the debut of Shafty, which was teased by Mike in Bathtub Gin and by Mike and Trey in Possum. Disease, Maze, and Possum were unfinished. Trey teased Fire (Ohio Players) in Shafty. The funky jam in between Possum and Cavern featured some stage banter from Trey about the funk jams the band had been playing. Accordingly, Cavern was played in a slower, funkier manner than usual and included some of the older, alternate lyrics. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
