I’ve changed my mind many times on this but right now I think “I Shall Be Released” is Bob Dylan’s greatest song. It was originally recorded by Dylan and the Band as part of the Basement tapes in 1967 but wasn’t released then. The Band, with Richard Manuel on lead vocal, released it in 1968 on Music from Big Pink. Dylan released a new version in 1971 on Greatest Hits, Vol. II. It’s the final song in the film The Last Waltz.
