To Ramona

I caught this Bob Dylan song  from his 1964 album the Other Side of Bob Dylan on Radio 6 recently. I was surprised I hadn't heard it before. I and had previously dismissed the album thinking it was all B sides. I was wrong - its another gem from the master songwriter/performer. He is a constant surprise.

Agreed. Chimes of Freedom from the same album is a favourite track.

This has always been a favourite Dylan track of mine. 

If you have access to Tidal, Spotify or any of the other streaming services, try to find the cover version by Irish singer Sinead Lohan. I think Dylan's version is fantastic, but I like her cover even more.

The last version by Jazzyspoon (?) is an interesting take on this great song.

I donít believe you (she acts like we never have met) is another great song on the Another side... with great electric versions on the Royal Albert Hall and Last Waltz live albums.

Great link! 

The Sinead Lohan's version of 'To Ramona' in this link is from one of her two solo albums and is really good. However, I think her version of the song on "A Woman's Heart - The Collection" is if anything even better.
