RAINY DAY WOMEN #12 & 35 August 31, 1969 Isle of Wight Festival


RAMBLIN' DOWN THROUGH THE WORLD April 12, 1963 Town Hall (New York City)
What seems to be an earlier recording of this song circulates, usually ascribed to an "unknown folk club" in late 1962 or early 1963. That recording appears likely from a brief, "warmup" set Dylan played in the Village in the early spring of 1963, shortly before the Town Hall concert.


Hajdu reports Dylan added this song to his club repertoire in the months between the recording and release of Bob Dylan. Based on the Clancy Brothers' workup of "Brennan On The Moor," it's a nearly irresistable choice to enliven a club set.


RATTLED No live performance


RESTLESS FAREWELL probably fall 1963
Heylin inexplicably lists the debut as February 22, 1964 (Berkeley), even though Day By Day reports a live performance on December 27, 1963 (Chicago). The song likely took a slot on Dylan's concert playlist shortly after it was written and recorded at the end of October.


RING THEM BELLS October 20, 1989 Mid-Hudson Arena (Poughkeepsie)


RITA MAY May 3, 1976 (E) Warehouse (New Orleans)
Dylan's only known live performance of this song.


ROCKS AND GRAVEL probably early 1962
First heard on an informal recording from Cynthia Gooding's apartment in March 1962, and recorded at the initial Freewheelin' sessions. Also found on both the 1962 Gaslight and Finjan tapes. There should be little doubt that this song was a fixture in Dylan's club sets throughout the year, from the time of its writing in late winter or early spring.
