GATES OF EDEN probably October 1964
The first known recording of the song is from the October 31, 1964 (Philharmonic Hall) concert. An earlier performance is on reported setlist for the October 24 (Symphony Hall, Boston) concert, and Heylin reports a performance in Kenyon, MI even earlier in the month. At the October 10 Philadelphia concert, "Chimes Of Freedom" holds the equivalent slot on the playlist.

GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY probably winter 1963
Dylan apparently wrote this song during or shortly after his winter 1962-63 stay in England. His first known recording of the song comes for a March 1963 Oscar Brand radio show. In April, he records the song for Freewheelin', and in May he cuts a demo for Witmark. During the summer, he plays the song for one of Tony Glover's last informal Dylan recordings. The first reported concert performance, however, does not come until December, at Lisner Auditorium in Washington, D.C. Heylin inexplicably lists the earliest surviving live recording, from the October 1964 Philadelphia concert, as the first live performance. There is little reason to believe that this song, like the other three added to Freewheelin' shortly before its release, was not a staple of Dylan's spring 1963 live sets, and the radio performance suggests it made an even earlier entrance into Dylan's repertoire.

GOTTA SERVE SOMEBODY October 20, 1979 Saturday Night Live TV (NYC)
