It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (4:14)

Cover of Bringing It All Back Home

From Bringing It All Back Home and 130 other releases

“It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” is a song written and performed by Bob Dylan and featured on his Bringing It All Back Home album, released on 22 March, 1965 by Columbia Records.
The song was originally recorded on January 15, 1965 with Dylan’s acoustic guitar and harmonica and William E. Lee’s bass guitar the only instrumentation.

Note: Dylan’s two previous albums, The Times They Are A-Changin’ and Another Side of Bob Dylan both ended with a farewell song, “Restless Farewell” and “It Ain’t Me, Babe” respectively. “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” concludes Bringing It All Back Home in consistent fashion. Much speculation has surrounded who and what was the “Baby Blue” that Dylan was saying farewell to. Although Dylan himself has remained mute on the subject, Dylan scholars believe that it is probably an amalgam of personalities within Dylan’s social orbit. One person who has been regarded as the subject of the song is folk singer Joan Baez.

Dylan and Baez were still in a relationship and were planning to tour together, but Dylan had been growing as an artist and as a person and may have already been planning to leave the relationship.

    Listening to Mr Dylan's 5th album "Bring It All Back Home" released March 22.1965. Dylan started to distance himself from the protest and folk. This album was considered a new era in the evolution of Mr Dylan's music and music of the 60s in general.
