365 Days of Dylan, Day 57: Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn).

Recorded by Dylan in 1967, The Mighty Quinn was first released by Manfred Mann who had a hit with the song in 1968. Dylan finally released the song on 1970's Self Portrait.

Kris Kristofferson, Lulu, The Grateful Dead, and The Hollies are among the artists who have sung about the legend of Quinn the Eskimo. Quinn the Eskimo lyrics.

Check out multiple versions of The Mighty Quinn on Amazon.

The 1989 Denzel Washington The Mighty Quinn took its name from Dylan's tune. Sheryl Lee Ralph perfromed a version of the song for the movie's soundtrack.
