Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I Go Mine) – Bob Dylan – This is the live 1974 version and as it heralds the finishing end of the 1960s, it also seems to strike out at… the audience? The US? Some girl who says Dylan’s kisses are not like his? The Band have never played purer pre-punk hard rock and Dylan never sounded more enraged – A
