1. Talkin' World War III Blues, Bob Dylan, BOOTLEG SERIES: LIVE 1966
2. You've Been A Good Ole Wagon, Bessie Smith, ESSENTIAL
3. King Joe, Jimmy Noone, R. CRUMB'S HEROES OF BLUES AND FOLK
4. This Dream of You, Bob Dylan, Together Through Life
5. Kiss the Children, Gram Parsons, G.P.
6. Someone's Got a Hold on My Heart, Bob Dylan, BOOTLEG SERIES, VOLUME SIX
7. Only a Hobo, Bob Dylan, BOOTLEG V. 4
8. The Levee's Gonna Break, Bob Dylan, MODERN TIMES
9. Waiting For a Miracle, Leonard Cohen, THE FUTURE
10. The Door, George Jones, ESSENTIAL

Jones, Cohen, Parsons and Noone show Dylan up. Lead-off is a song the Walker Arts Center crowd could love, new album cut is a dull nod to Peckinpaugh days, Infidels outtake shoulda stayed that way, the New Orleans song I seem to like for its movement/lyrics but the performance is nothing special. If Dylan is going to release all this material I'm going to use the Ipod to prune.
