And too soon becomes yesterday

Mr. Shane (née Schoen), with the late Messrs. Reynolds and Stewart, performing possibly the best version of Bobby Zimmerman's Tomorrow is a Long Time, circa 1966.

The above photo, right to left, depicts the second iteration of the Trio (following Dave Guard's departure), usually referred to as: Nick, Bob and John. Shane's breathy baritone and Stewart's haunting vibrato harmony make this one of my favorites.

It probably wouldn't surprise you that I first heard more Dylan songs from the Trio, PP&M, Baez and the Byrds, than from the Minnesotan himself.  Positively 4th Street, Tangled Up in Blue, and Rainy Day Women #12 &35 being notable exceptions.
