SAMSON AND DELILAH June 11, 2004 Bonarroo (Manchester, TN)


SAM STONE September 1971 Bitter End (New York City)
Song performed by John Prine, with Dylan on harp and backing vocals. Heylin dates this appearance to 1972, Shelton to 1973, but Prine's own account places the appearance in 1971.


SAN FRANCISCO BAY BLUES perhaps spring 1960
Reported as a regular feature of Dylan's St. Paul club sets. It reportedly appears on the complete fall 1960 Minneapolis tape, and circulates on other informal recordings from early 1961; the earliest surviving live recording comes from a September 1961 Gerdes performance (in a duet with Jim Kweskin).


SATISFIED MIND November 9, 1999 Apollo Of Temple (Philadelphia)


SEARCHING FOR A SOLDIER'S GRAVE June 15, 2000 Roseland Theater (Portland, OR)


SEE THAT MY GRAVE IS KEPT CLEAN probably summer 1961
The first documented (but unrecorded) performance of this song comes from Dylan's opening set at Gerdes, September 26, 1961; Dylan presumably honed his version of the song in previous appearances. The only recorded live performance is found on the October 1962 Gaslight Tape.

SHE'S LOVE CRAZY June 26, 1978 Westphalia Hall (Dortmund)


SILVER DAGGER October 31, 1964 Philharmonic Hall (NYC)
Song performed by Joan Baez, backed by Dylan on harp. There appear to be no reports of earlier duet performances of this song, a longtime staple in Baez's sets, and Hajdu implies the performance was a debut.


SILVER MANTIS probably April 18, 1976 Civic Center Arena (Lakeland)
Song performed by T-Bone Burnett, perhaps backed by Dylan on guitar. I'm unaware of any direct evidence that Dylan played on the song, but it appears on so many tapes which otherwise exclude the non-Dylan performances that some Dylan contribution seems likely.


SING ME BACK HOME June 11, 2004 Bonarroo (Manchester, TN)


SINNER MAN probably winter 1959-60
Remembered by Ten O'Clock Scholar manager Dave Lee as part of "Bob Dillon's" first set at the Minneapolis club.

SITTIN' ON TOP OF THE WORLD No known live performance


SLIPPIN' AND SLIDIN' July 14, 1969 Mississippi River Festival (Edwardsville)

SOLD AMERICAN September 15, 1991 Chabad telethon (Los Angeles)
