Conversely, Version 2 of ‘Can’t Wait’ (CD 3 – 1997) slows things right down – it’s sultry, dubby, late-night blues, while Version 1 of ‘Love Sick’ (CD 2 – 1997) is seriously spooky, with Dylan’s voice sounding husky and cracked. But the story of Fragments—the story of the album Time Out Of Mind isn’t, but almost was—rests with “Mississippi. He couldn’t work this close to his home and his family, which, by now, included six children and multiple grandchildren.

Disc 5 gives us the original haunting take of “Can’t Wait” that raised Howard’s arm hairs: Over a hard backbeat, Dylan’s block piano chords and impressively tasty riffing from Lanois, Dylan chews the scenery with the unhinged glee of a Shakespearean actor let loose in a Hollywood blockbuster.
