365 Days of Dylan, Day 14: I Shall Be Released

365 Days of Dylan, Day 14: I Shall Be Released, first heard on The Band's Music from the Big Pink, with so many wonderful versions to follow, including two different ones on Bob Dylan's Official Bootleg releases and a number of live versions too. 

This allstar performance from The Last Waltz.

Of the many covers, I particularly love Nina Simone's...

And Jeff Buckley's.

And there are so many more wonderful versions.

Joe Cocker performed a powerful rendition at Woodstock.

Let's close with this version from Bob Dylan, the ultimate stylist of this and all his songs, from Sidetracks.

At the end of the day, with the setting of the sun, we are all looking for a little rest, a little redemption, a little release.
