On Brave And Reckless, one of those songs timelessly current even 54 years since I first heard it.
When Patti Smith accepted the Nobel Prize on Bob Dylan’s behalf she sung a stunning and emotional version of A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall. If you had forgotten for a moment what an amazing writer Bob Dylan is or what an fabulous performer Patti Smith is, this will remind you. I cannot imagine a more relevant performance given what is currently going on in our world.
I recommend The New Yorker’s great piece A TRANSCENDENT PATTI SMITH ACCEPTS BOB DYLAN’S NOBEL PRIZE

I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I’ve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
