I Believe In You

On the first night of his new tour, in Stockholm, Sweden, Bob Dylan performed I Believe In You. In a kind of set-list-joke (intentional or not) it came right after I Don’t Believe You.

First night of the new Bob Dylan tour: Billy

This would appear to be the first live performance of the song that Bob wrote for his great soundtrack to the Sam Peckinpah film, “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.”

My own Billie is awfully excited to hear about it. Continue reading “First night of the new Bob Dylan tour: <em>Billy</em>” »
