Saw DL perform this piece solo at the beginning of last year. The man can play, but he is showing signs of stuck-in-a-groove-itis.
There's a reason the Lyrics tab is empty.

Is this really how the cajuns spell "bons temps roulée"? And how on earth can a recording be an "official bootleg" - shurely shome oxymoron? The noun/verb 'bootleg' comes from smuggling days and the whole essence of bootlegging is illegality - see the Chambers definition.
Depends on which Cajun you ask, I suspect — but that's how Lindley spells it on the CD cover.

As for the album title, Dave *hated* having bootleg recordings of his shows sold. In part because of the money, but even more so because they always — in his opinion — used recordings of his very worst shows. So he picked a live recording he liked, and released it as an "official bootleg".  He did at least 2 of them. Unfortunately very hard to find.
Is that an euglena in your post? 

This song makes me think of unicelular organisms and what they would sound if they could sing!

Seriously, like the original Dylan version SO much better.
Wonderful.  Inspires me to visit this wonderful part of the world.

Before every show:

Stage Manager Guy: " Dave, grab your guitar, it's time to go on."

Dave: " I play guitar?" 

{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}... Awesome. It paints a gorgeous picture of accidental genius.
