Watching Carson tonight, Carl Reiner mentioned the Sahara Tahoe, a Del Webb property that originally opened in 1965. That jogged my memory, as I remembered the Kingston Trio live album Once Upon a Time, which was recorded there in July 1966, and featured this Dylan cover.
It's not the live version that I remember, but possibly has better harmonies (this was recorded the following year at San Francisco's hungry i club. I am particularly fond of Bob Shane's baritone vocals. Though now retired, Shane is the sole surviving member of the original Trio.
Possibly I have featured this video before, but was too lazy to check back issues.
BTW, Carson's monologue tonight was rough. Dating to the Gerald Ford presidency, he had great guests - Carl Reiner and David Brenner, but during the actual opening, I think Tommy Newsom got better laughs than Johnny did.
Some days are like that.
Edit: Not one to leave well enough alone, I checked my back catalog, and sure enough, I ran this song November 11, 2013.
