HALLELUJAH July 8, 1988 Forum (Montreal)


HALLELUJAH I'M READY TO GO June 11, 1999 General Motors Place (Vancouver)


HANDSOME MOLLY perhaps spring 1961
The earliest known recording is found on the July 29, 1961 Riverside Church broadcast; by that time, the song was apparently fixed in Dylan's club sets. It remained in his repertoire at least through 1962, until he discarded virtually all covers from his playlist in favor of his own compositions.


HANG ME O HANG ME undetermined
Dylan recorded this song for "Madhouse In Castle Street" at the end of December in 1962; it had likely been part of his repertoire earlier in his career. That recording is lost. It is not again documented until the January 1990 Toad's Place marathon. The song goes by various names, most commonly "Blue Ridge Mountains."


HANGKNOT SLIPKNOT perhaps spring 1961
Documented only by the May 6, 1961 Indian Neck Festival recording.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY undeterminable
Listed for the truly obsessive. First documented at the Mike Porco birthday party in 1975 (but not included in Renaldo And Clara); first recorded October 25, 1981 in Bethlehem, PA. Earlier, undocumented versions are certain.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY January 20, 1986 Kennedy Center (Washington, DC)
Performed and written by Stevie Wonder, with Dylan in the backing ensemble at this tribute concert/broadcast.


HARD TIMES April 12, 1993 Performing Arts Center (Louisville)


HARD TRAVELIN' perhaps fall 1960
First reported at Dylan's September 1961 Gerdes booking, but likely dating back to his Minnesota days (especially since the lyrics are alluded to in "Song To Woody.")


THE HARDER THEY COME August 20, 1989 Starwood Amphitheater (Nashville)


HAZY SHADE OF WINTER July 1, 1992 Parc des Exhibitiones (Reims)


THE HEART THAT YOU OWN September 2, 1999 Coral Sky Amphitheater (West Palm Beach)


HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT January 12, 1990 Toad's Place (New Haven)


HELPLESS March 23, 1975 SNACK benefit (San Francisco)
Song performed by Neil Young, backed by Dylan and several members of The Band.


HERE COMES THE SUN July 1, 1981 Earls Court (London)
Dylan manages only a single verse of the song before launching into "Girl From The North Country."


HEY GOOD LOOKIN' October 26, 1990 Coleman Coliseum (Tuscaloosa)


HEY JOE July 12, 1992 Pinede de Juan-les-Pins (Antibes)


HIGHWAY 51 perhaps fall 1961
This title is listed on a 1961 manuscript which Heylin has described as planned setlists and, more recently, a tentative proposal for his debut album. Dylan actually records the song for Bob Dylan, but the earliest well-documented live performance is at the September 22, 1962 "all-star hootenanny" (Carnegie Hall).


HIRAM HUBBARD undetermined
The earliest known live performance of this song is on the July 2, 1962 Finjan Club recording.


HOMEWARD BOUND June 6, 1991 Palaeur (Rome)


HONEY DON'T February 19, 1987 Palomino Club (Los Angeles)
Song performed by the Grafitti Band, with Dylan, John Fogerty, and George Harrison informally joining on guitar.


HONKY TONK BLUES February 1, 1999 Leon County Civic Center (Tallahassee)


HOOTCHIE KOOTCHIE MAN November 11, 1999 Civic Center (Augusta, ME)


HOUSE CARPENTER undetermined
Dylan recorded this song, a staple among folk performers, for his debut album. No live performances are known, but it had likely seen time in his club repertoire, perhaps even in Minnesota.


HOUSE OF GOLD June 15, 1989 Sportspalace (Madrid)


HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN perhaps spring 1960
Reported as a regular feature of Dylan's St. Paul club sets.


HOW LONG July 3, 1975 Other End (New York City)
Song performed by Jack Elliott, with Dylan on guitar and backing vocals.


HOWDIDO perhaps spring 1961
While no live performances of this song have been recorded or reported, an informal version was preserved on the May 1961 Minnesota Party Tape; that recording appears devoted to songs Dylan added to his repertoire during his early days in New York City.


HUMMING BIRD June 28, 2001 Krogshavn (Langesund)
