    Can’t see the link. Is it new? Or vintage?

    Vintage I think. No other details yet

    It's an early version of Foot of Pride.
    Presumably from the upcoming Bootleg Series.

    Supposedly it is an early version of "Foot Of Pride", before Bob rewrote some (all?) of the lyrics. Recorded during or close to the Infidels sessions in the 1980s. Also, this is likely to appear on the next Bootleg Series set, which is rumored to revisit the Infidels period.

    Very much looking forward to this disc, still often listen to Uncut's similar Highway 61 Revisited Revisited from a few years ago.

    A Bootleg Series on the Infidels period is something I'm really looking forward to. A real peak for Dylan that the released album kind of undersells, though in truth I'd rather see a deluxe expanded edition of the album than a bootleg series mix of gems and odds and sods (I kind of loose patience with some of these outtakes collections catchalls). But man, when I think about the stuff left behind -- "Blind Willie McTell," "Foot of Pride," "Lord Protect My Child," "Clean Cut Kid" even "Someone's Got a Hold of My Heart" (though I prefer that melody and harmony when it was used for "Caribbean Wind"), what a fertile period.

    It sounds like a folk melody...not at all like the melody of “Foot Of Pride” that we’re familiar with.

    It actually sounds like a completely different song until some familiar lyrics kick in...other lyrics are unfamiliar....

    “I don’t know, I can’t say, I was visiting a friend in jail...”

    “There were only two women at the scene at the time, neither one of them saw a thing...”

    Really nice song.

    The first familiar part kicks in about 30 seconds in....

    “reached too high, tumbled back to the ground,
    You know what they say about being nice to the right people on the way up,
    Sooner or later you might meet ‘em coming down”.

    “It’s too late to bring him back, too late, too late, too late...”

    It reminds me a bit of “Caribbean Wind”...

    I've just got hold of a copy of this Uncut CD. It's the best collection of Dylan covers in ages. Currently listening to Weyes Blood's cover of Sad Eyed Lady, the first time I've enjoyed a cover of this hallowed song as much as the original. Wow!

    The whole disc is great. Some excellent covers, thoughtfully sequenced.

    But yes, that Weyes Blood version of “Sad Eyed Lady” is fantastic. It really captures the thin, wild mercury magic of the original. Beautiful stuff.

    It's a shame that in the last verse she seems to mistake Cannery Row for Canary Row, but it's still a fabulous, spellbinding rendition.

    That’s the only jarring bit.

    Surely, she must be aware of the Steinbeck reference? He is well taught in the United States, or at least he was. I want to put it down to a quirk of pronunciation, rather than ignorance.

    To me this is the most interesting Dylan recording to emerge for years (OK, the JWH outtakes were great, but not as surprising as this.) It bodes well for the Infidels-focused Bootleg Series release. Let's hope that one really does come out this year, and doesn't keep getting postponed like the Blood on the Tracks set.

    Just one observation: the fourth and last chorus is a clone of the third, at least as far as the vocal is concerned. They evidently had to do a bit of patching up to get this track into what the producers considered a releasable state.

    I agree. This is one of the best Dylan out-takes to have emerged in a long time. If it's a sign of things to come on the Infidels box set, my anticipation for this just doubled. This is going to be a outstanding collection.

    Just have to echo what's already been said - this is an incredible compilation from start to finish, but Weyes Blood's version of "Lowlands" is absolutely breathtaking. One of the best Dylan covers I've ever heard, up there with Sonic Youth's "I'm Not There" and Emmylou's "Every Grain of Sand".

    The Flaming Lips' cover of 'Lay Lady Lay' is magical.

    I am a little confused. This song should appear on the CD of Uncut 06/21.
    As I read some have the disc already though it's nor released yet?

    For those who haven't heard it yet, here is Weyes Blood's Sad Eyed Lady of The Lowlands. It is as good as those above have already said.

    It's the way magazine dates work - the month on the cover is the month the issue goes off sale. Over the years it's drifted earlier and earlier so now the June issue comes out in mid-April. It is a bit silly.
