Bob Dylan: Listen to 10 studio takes of “Tell Ol’ Bill” (and chat between the takes)

Mid-June 2005, halfway through a thirty-two-date tour with Willie Nelson, Dylan used a two-day break from the road to cut his latest movie-soundtrack offering, for an independent film, North Country, based on the life of a female miner who brought a sexual harassment suit in North Carolina. ..
