Milk Cow Blues (Robert Johnson/James "Kokomo" Arnold*)

Also known as Milk Cow (Calf's) Blues

*Note on authorship: Michael Krogsgaard reports the studio records as listing this song as "Milk Cow Calf's Blues" by Robert Johnson. Michael Gray in "Song & Dance Man III" (Cassell, 1999) says: "When Dylan recorded "Milk Cow Blues" (unreleased) in 1962, he used part of Kokomo Arnold's lyric, part of Presley's, part of Robert Johnson's 1937 "Milk Cow's Calf's Blues" and part of Lead Belly's "Good Morning Blues", shuffling the elements around in the course of two takes." (Gray says earlier that although Elvis Presley's Sun version ("Milkcow Blues Boogie") is credited to Kokomo Arnold, it is completely different from Arnold's song, and seems actually to be the version of "Milk Cow Blues" recorded by Johnny Lee Wills in 1941.) According to Krogsgaard there were actually four takes on 25 Apr 1962, take 1 did not  come into circulation until 2012 on the Sony Music Europe 4CD set The 50th Anniversary Collection (see 2012), take 2 was incomplete, and the takes which surfaced in 1980 referred to by Gray were takes 3 and 4.

Mixed Up Confusion [7" Mono Single, Dec 1962, then Biograph, 1985]

For details of all the alternate takes of this song, see 1962, 1974, 1976, 1978, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1997 and the Sony Music Europe 4CD set The 50th Anniversary Collection, 2012. Many thanks to Roger Ford, Les Kokay, Bob Stacy and Ian Woodward for all their information about these alternate takes, and for permission to reproduce their findings.

Take A

R-0007 A-side of US Columbia mono 7" single, Dec 1962, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 14 Nov 1962 (take 14)

R-0575 Different mono mix of R-0007 (original 1962 US single), from US Columbia acetate, surfaced Nov 1983

R-0888 Stereo version of R-0007 on the 1997 remastered CD release of Biograph, see 1997, now replaced on the latest Biograph by R-0748, see below

Take B

R-0145 A re-working of the original take, almost certainly overdubbed at a later date with different musicians, and slowed down by a semitone (approximately 5%) in the process. This is probably a product of the 8 Dec 1962 overdub session which produced the “electric” House Of The Rising Sun that appeared on the Highway 61 Interactive CD-ROM (see 1995); if so then the overdub was produced without Dylan’s involvement. This mono mix of the overdub, with Dylan’s vocal and guitar very much to the fore, first appeared on  the Japanese promo LP Mr. D's Collection # 1 (see 1974), then on the Japanese promo EP Mr. D's Collection # 2 (see 1977) and the 1978 Japanese/Australian compilation Masterpieces (see 1978). This take is specifically labelled as mono on the Japanese release of Masterpieces, although on the Australian release it is shown wrongly as stereo. (Text from Roger Ford.)

R-0748 A stereo mix of the same overdub take as R-0145, with the overdubbed backing more clearly audible, but faded out a few seconds earlier and similarly slowed down. This appeared on the original 1985 release of Biograph (see 1985), disappeared in 1997 when the album was remastered, but has recently resurfaced on a European “ecolbook” edition of the album - see the Biograph page of International Albums (Regular).
Thanks to Blake Eikenberry for information that 2013's Side Tracks, released as a 2CD set as part of The Complete Album Collection Vol. One and also as a limited numbered edition 3LP set, also contains the alternate take of Mixed Up Confusion from the 1985 release of Biograph (R-0748)!

R-0654 Work in progress in hotel room, Glasgow Scotland, 19 May 1966, from documentary Eat The Document, 1967, see VHS & DVD 1960s
Both songs were copyrighted separately by Dwarf Music in 1978, but are really part of the same work-in-progress, and the titles are used misleadingly. The song identified as I Can't Leave Her Behind on the bonus disc with the DVD release of Martin Scorsese's 2005 documentary "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan" (see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 3) is actually the song copyrighted as On A Rainy Afternoon!
