This is apparently the only time this song was ever performed live and as far as I can tell, it was never recorded for an album either.

Amazingly raw rendition. Band also doesn't skip a beat when someone hands Dylan a harmonica in the wrong key and he wanders around for a full minute looking for the right one.
I think this performance is what was inside the Ark in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
“The Bottle”, 1983.
“Jumping Someone Else’s Train” & “Grinding Halt”. Amsterdam, 10/17/1980. Pre-Scissorhands Robert Smith.
“Down by the Waterline”. Dortmund, 1980. Your patience during the first 2 minutes will be rewarded sevenfold.
“Eminence Front,” Toronto, December 1982.
For the longest time, I thought this was a Genesis song.
Covering Townes Van Zandt’s “Pancho & Lefty.” Pretty sure it’s from the first Farm Aid in 1985.
If I could spend just 15 minutes of my life being this cool, I’d die a happy man.
Quite possibly the best version of “Down by the River” I’ve ever found. Anyone have any info on this show?
Answered by @eastvanhalen & @HeyTweed: it’s from Austin City Limits, 1984. Thanks guys!
Prince, Something in the Water (Does Not Compute) session. Unknown year, but probably early 1980s.
Raw. Like, seriously fucking raw. Also, I miss the days when Prince used to shred.
I think Nic Cage based his entire career on Bryan Ferry’s performance here.
