    This is boggling my mind. I could have sworn I heard some live female version of “Tangled Up in Blue” at about half past the hour (on WXPN in Philadelphia, if that makes a difference), but I can’t remember who did it and it’s not appearing in the playlist. A shame, because it was by far the best recording of the song that I’ve ever heard and I’d like to track down a copy.

    Not from my show, but it may be from Mary Lee’s Corvette “Blood on the Tracks” – a fine CD!
