Rainy Day Women Nos. 12 & 35

Rainy Day Women Nos. 12 & 35 - Bob Dylan
c/w Pledging My Time

Opening track from 1966's Blonde On Blonde album.

Wikipedia has this to say:

"The song is essentially a simple blues chord progression in the musical key of F. The parts played by the trombone, tuba, piano, bass, drums, and tambourine remain practically the same in all of the verses, but Dylan's harmonica playing and vocal performance are both wildly varied, and generally not in the same key as other instruments. There can also be heard much laughter and shouting in the background, mixed down to a low volume level, and Dylan himself laughs several times during his vocal delivery."

I need not say more!
