WADE IN THE WATER 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 the song turned up in Dylan's 1961 New York club performances.

THE WEIGHT January 3, 1974 Chicago Stadium (Chicago)
According to Stephen Pickering, the Band performed this song with Dylan backing on harp and guitar. Pickering's report is often disputed, but other once-challenged parts of his account of that concert were confirmed when a nearly-complete tape surfaced 25 years later. On March 23, 1975, Dylan was part of a performing ensemble, along with Neil Young and several members of the Band, which performed the song at a benefit concert in San Francisco. Dylan finally contributed noticeable vocals to the song during a walkon appearance with Levon Helm at the Lone Star Cafe in New York City, May 29, 1988.
