Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again (7:05)

Cover of Bob Dylan: The Collection

From Bob Dylan: The Collection and 116 other releases

“Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again” is a song by Bob Dylan that appears on his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde. The album version also appears on 1971’s Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol. II. Another version of the song appears on the 1976 live album Hard Rain. An early studio take, done in a faster cut-time, was released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home: The Soundtrack; as the recording indicates, Dylan had difficulty fitting the words to the tempo, and evidently this led to its rearrangement, as heard on the official album, in a more “rock” oriented 4/4 time.[1]

The song also inspired the name of the Memphis Group, a 1980s design movement, with its title.

    A seminar in how to write an incredibly long song and still keep people listening with the power of the words alone.

    I said, "Oh! Come on now. You know you know about my debutante." She said, "Your debutante just knows what you need, but I know what you want."

    I'm not a huge fan of Blonde on Blonde, but this song is terrific! The lyrics are strange, of course, but I think there's a more intelligent & playful (or intelligently playful) sensibility at work here than on a lot of the electric era surrealism. And lest it go unmentioned, the early outtake is at least as good as the released version! Then there's Hard Rain... can't go wrong with this number, basically.

    Objectively speaking the language is just excessive and random. But his voice somehow makes it work and the band carries the tune beautifully.
