One Too Many Mornings


Bob Dylan in studio, 1963 (1-75p)

One Too Many Mornings (Bob Dylan)

Bob Dylan originally recorded the song on 24 October 1963, at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City, during the fifth recording session for the album The Times They Are a-Changin’. The session took place only two days before Dylan’s 26 October 1963 Carnegie Hall concert. The sixth and final take of the song during the 24 October session was included on the album. I’ve been unable to find an audio file or video containing that recording, but will include it here soon as I do find it.

Bob Dylan —  from the 1 June 1965 (1, 2) concert at the BBC Television Theatre in Shepherd’s Bush, London; audio only

From the review at Collectors Music Reviews:

From BlackDog’s [bootleg label] liner notes: “Postponed for a week because of his illness, Dylan’s two 35-minute BBC-TV shows – filmed one after another on 1st June 1965 – remain one of his last full concert television appearances as an acoustic solo artist. They were shot at the BBC Television Theatre, on Shepherds Bush Green, now better known as the Shepherds Bush Empire.

Johnny Cash — 1965(?) — Although the YouTube video provider seems to have gotten this track from the 2011 compilation Bootleg Vol II – From Memphis To Hollywood, it’s probably the 29 October 1965 recording that was included on the 1978 compilation album Johnny & June, released on the Bear Family Records label.

The album was partly recorded on May 23, 1976, during a concert at Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins, Colorado; the penultimate show of the tour, the concert was also filmed and later broadcast by NBC as a one-hour television special in September. (Hard Rain’s release coincided with this broadcast).

Neither the album nor the television special was well received.
