Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? – The Hold Steady
Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again – Cat Power
Goin’ To Acapulco – Jim James with Calexico
Pressing On – John Doe
I’m Not There – Bob Dylan
Even though 1967 was the year that Dylan retreated from the public eye, it was also his most prolific year as a writer, spawning the Basement Tapes and John Wesley Harding. ‘I’m Not There’ was recorded during the Basement Tapes sessions, but it was put to one side, and was never officially released until this soundtrack. The hook line, “I’m not there/I’m gone” seems fitting for the year when Dylan went to earth. Sonic Youth’s version on the album’s first disc is also excellent.
