Bob Dylan: 5 Great live versions of “Love Minus Zero/No Limit”

My love, she speaks like silence
Without ideals or violence.
She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful
Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire.

Written by Bob Dylan for his fifth studio album Bringing It All Back Home and recorded January 14, 1965.

Performed 365 times live, first @ Troy Armory, Troy, New York – Feb 12, 1965 & last @ 1st Bank Center, Broomfield, Colorado – Oct 30, 2012.

Hollywood Bowl
Los Angeles, California
3 September 1965

People carry roses
And make promises by the hours
My love laughs like the flowers
Valentines can’t buy her.


Forum de Montréal
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
4 December 1975

In the dime stores and bus stations
People talk of situations
Read books, repeat quotations
Draw conclusions on the wall.

Some speak of the future
My love, she speaks softly
She knows there’s no success like failure
And that failure’s no success at all.


Orpheum Theatre
Boston, Massachusetts

The cloak and dagger dangles
Madams light the candles
In ceremonies of the horsemen
Even the pawn must hold a grudge.

    1. I’ll never forget that one, but I have posted it before.. a couple of times. I tried to put together a couple of “lesser” known, but still great versions this time.
