The Song

Gotta Serve Somebody

Taken from a VHS video recording of the television broadcast. The beginning of Kenny Rogers' introduction is clipped, with but the last nineteen seconds remaining. The introduction is further compromised by occasional distortion attributable to a variation in tape speed. The first two lines of the first verse of Gotta Serve Somebody enjoy similar glitches. Gotta Serve Somebody is followed by Dylan's brief acceptance speech. To whit: "I, I didn't expect this and want to thank the Lord for it and, most likely I want to also thank Jerry Wexler, Barry Beckett who believed in it. So I thank you."
Dubbed 01/04/98. One side only. 60 min. Video also available on 120 minute VHS.
