Dead Air Church: Gotta Serve Somebody

Okay, I've got three versions, so choose the one you want!

The first one is the best, musically speaking--a live version by Booker T and the MGs, from the Bob Dylan: 30th Anniversary Celebration at Madison Square Garden. (Steve Cropper on guitar! And one of the greatest musicians ever, fabulous Jim Keltner on drums.) The second rendition is by Judy Collins, from Judy sings Dylan... Just like a Woman.

And finally, the original, from the now-legendary Slow Train Coming.

I have a version of this by Nichole Nordeman and had no idea it was a cover! (This happens to me a lot, e.g., "Incense and Peppermints" by Adult Net, "Hazy Shade of Winter" by the Bangles, "Wild Horses" by the Sundays, etc.)

Three excellent versions of a great song... was not familiar with Booker T other than by name, a pleasure to discover this video of him... many thanks Daisy !
