Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 (4:35)

Cover of Bob Dylan: The Collection

From Bob Dylan: The Collection and 140 other releases

The opening track of Dylan’s album Blonde on Blonde. It is reported that Dylan got his musicians drunk for the recording, claiming they were too stiff. (Which would explain all the hooting and hollering)

According to Howard Sounes’ book Down the Highway: The Life of Bob Dylan, Dylan refused to play the song “straight,” meaning sober, and large milkshake cartons of “Leprechaun Cocktails” (normally served in shot glasses) were brought in for the band to consume. Dylan did not touch the alcohol but was high on cannabis, having passed joints around before the recording. [1]
