CANADEE-I-O no live performance


CANDY MAN unknown, perhaps fall 1961
While no live performances of this song have been recorded or reported, Dylan played it for Tony Glover's Minnesota Hotel Tape recording. It appears likely that this song, common among 1960's folksingers, turned up in Dylan's early New York club performances.


CAR CAR probably spring 1960 perhaps Ten O'Clock Scholar (St. Paul)
Reported as a regular feature of Dylan's St. Paul club sets. Earliest recorded live performance found on the first Gaslight Tape (September 6, 1961).

COCAINE BLUES unknown, perhaps fall 1961
Dylan played this song for Tony Glover's December 1961 Minnesota Hotel Tape recording. Although the first documented live version of the song is from the October 1962 Gaslight tape, it was probably featured in Dylan's club sets by the fall of 1961.


COLUMBUS STOCKADE BLUES probably spring 1960
This song appears on the Karen Wallace Tape, which apparently consists of songs from Dylan's earliest repertoire. A year later, Dylan refurbished the song as "California Brown-Eyed Baby,"; there is no evidence of any public performance of the later version.
