2 ♪♫ Just Like A Woman by Bob Dylan (Acoustic Guitar and Harmonica Cover)“Just Like a Woman” is a song written by Bob Dylan and first released on his 1966 album, Blonde on Blonde (see 1966 in music).[1] It was also released as a single in the U.S. during August 1966 and peaked at #33 on the Billboard Hot 100.[2] Dylan’s recording of “Just Like a Woman” was not issued as a single in the United Kingdom but the British beat group, Manfred Mann, did release a hit single version of the song in July 1966, which peaked at #10 on the UK Singles Chart.[3] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Dylan’s version of the song at #230 in their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Dylan wrote “Just Like a Woman” on November 25, 1965 (Thanksgiving Day) in Kansas City while on tour.[5] It was allegedly inspired by New York socialite Edie Sedgwick,[5] who frequented Andy Warhol’s Factory at around the same time that Dylan was introduced to Warhol. Sedgewick had a tendency to catch the attention of musicians; The Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed wrote “Femme Fatale”, released on 1967′s The Velvet Underground & Nico album, about Sedgwick at roughly the same time.[6] “Just Like a Woman” has also been rumored to have been written about Dylan’s relationship with fellow folk singer Joan Baez.[1] In particular, the lines “Please don’t let on that you knew me when/I was hungry and it was your world” seem to refer to the early days of their relationship, when Baez was more famous than Dylan. The master take of “Just Like a Woman” was produced by Bob Johnston and recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, Tennessee on March 8, 1966, during the recording sessions for Blonde on Blonde.[7] The song features a lilting melody, backed by delicately picked nylon-string guitar and piano instrumentation, resulting in arguably the most commercial track on the album.[1] The musicians on the track include Dylan himself on guitar and harmonica, along with a host of top Nashville session musicians, including Charlie McCoy, Joseph A. Souter Jr., and Wayne Moss on guitar, Henry Strzelecki on bass, Hargus “Pig” Robbins on piano, and Kenny Buttrey on drums.[1] Although Dylan’s frequent sidemen, Al Kooper and Robbie Robertson, were both present at the recording session, they didn’t actually play on the song.[1] Their task at the session was to act as intermediaries between Dylan and the hired studio musicians. In addition to its appearance on Blonde on Blonde, “Just Like a Woman” also appears on several Dylan compilations, including Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits, Masterpieces, Biograph, The Best of Bob Dylan, Vol. 1, The Essential Bob Dylan, and Dylan.[1] Live recordings of the song have been included on Before the Flood, Bob Dylan at Budokan, The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live 1966, The “Royal Albert Hall” Concert, and The Bootleg Series Vol. 5: Bob Dylan Live 1975, The Rolling Thunder Revue. Dylan performed the song at George Harrison and Ravi Shankar’s Concert for Bangladesh in 1971 and consequently, a live recording of it is featured on the Concert for Bangladesh album.
