The back story, from the Prof:
“The B-side is entirely different version from the one we know from Dylan’s 2nd album (recorded at the same session). This track not appear anywhere else other than this single.
It’s a little bit more complicated with the A-side; there are no less than three different takes of this song in circulation. This is the original version as chosen by producer John Hammond and this single is pretty much the only place where you can hear the original mono version as prepared for release. The very same take appears in stereo on the revisited 1997 version of the ‘Biograph’ boxset but that version, with its wide stereo panorama, diminishes the strength of the song.
The 45 was first released in Dec. 1962 in the US only. It failed to do anything and sold in small numbers. Pretty soon, it was deleted. But with Dylan’s popularity on a height on the mid-60’s, the Dutch division of Columbia/CBS decided to re-release the 45 in an attractive photo sleeve (with a picture from the Highway 61 sessions) in late 1966.

Art Garfunkel, “In Cars,” from “Scissors Cut,” 1981.
Mildly freaked out by the late Scritti Politti feel here.
Jan Steele, “Distant Saxophones,” from “Voices and Instruments,” 1976.
This track is taken from one of the ten albums originally released between 1976 and 1978 on Brian Eno’s Obscure Records label, all of which are up now at Ubuweb. So far, so great — the lot. Really.
Neneh Cherry & The Thing, “Dream Baby Dream,” from “The Cherry Thing,” 2012.
Dolores, “Tomorrow Never Knows,” from “Dolores,” 1987.
Dolores was the second band I was in, and the first I recorded with. We made two full-length cassettes; this song is from the first. The singer and guitarist Tim Thomas engineered and mixed the entire session. It was done in whatever the music studio at Brown is called, near WBRU. The original multitrack is on some fucked up digital medium that uses VHS tapes. (Thank you to @StripperTweets for digitizing the cassette.)
This was the last song we did that day, and succeeds (if it does at all) because of Tim’s vocal and mix. The feedback and noise is me playing the “D bass” that I later used in Ui. (It’s a cheap black Yamaha bass with all the strings tuned to D, and it’s the only piece of gear that I didn’t sell last year). Alex Wright plays the octave ostinato bassline and Dave Reid is on drums.
Rye Rye, “Shake Twist Drop,” featuring Tyga, produced by The Neptunes, 2012.
Just to keep you in the loop. Not fire but not bad.
